A Complete Guide to the Museum of Sex in New York City
The Museum of Sex was revealed to the world in and has since gone on to win prestigious awards for its wholly unique exhibitions, such as How New York Transformed Sex in America. While the museum takes pride in its ability to see the fun side of sex, the exhibitions here are carefully curated with a serious and academic approach, making the journey through the museum entertaining but first and foremost, informative. The people enlisted in the creation of the exhibitions are mostly doctors and historians with PhDs in their field. Interactive installations reimagine the illicit thrills of the carnival with a 4-D immersive Tunnel of Love ride, a biometric kissing booth, an erotic fortune-telling machine with an appearance from drag queen legend RuPaul and a climbing structure with a slide ending at the carnival bar. Just a flavour of what to expect at the MoSex.
This is guaranteed to be the friskiest way to learn about historical and social aspects of society, culture, and sex.

It also houses a research library and an extensive multimedia library. Exhibits range from historical ephemera and paraphernalia to art and photography to movies to interactive games.
