The Leather Archives & Museum

It has a great layout featuring a small theater area (for screenings and lectures), original artwork, punishment/play artifacts, galleries that change displays per season, and loads of material for those looking to learn about kink (or to dig deeper into that subject matter).
I've been there plenty of times and it's a really cool, interesting place. Classy people. A friendly and intellectual staff. If you're new to all this, don't worry about feeling intimidated when you go in there because it's not that kind of place. It's more about taking a scholastic and historic/cultural approach to Leather using information and displays to teach and communicate. It's not wild or crazy in there. It's for thinking, study, and inspiration.....
It's a museum, not a playspace. All adults are welcome whether you're entrenched in the fetish lifestyle or if you're just looking to see something different than the norm.
Check out their calendar and go to one of their evening events. It would make a good place to take a date (seriously) to do something a little bit edgy/unique. Or take a friend--or just yourself--and stroll through there to see what's new.
