Antique Vibrator Museum

Awesome little museum in the back room of Good Vibrations (a woman-focused sex toy store) on Polk Street. It's free, and it displays vibrators from the 1800s through the 1970s. The early models were viewed as a medical tool for treating "female disorders"/hysteria, and later marketed as a home appliance for health and beauty.
