Kinsey Institute

Kinsey Institute
Named after Alfred Kinsey

https://www.kinseyinstitute.org/about/
On April 8, 1947, Dr. Alfred Kinsey and his research team incorporated as the Institute for Sex Research. ISR had two primary goals: to continue the team’s research on human sexual behavior; and to administer research resources, including research materials, a library, case histories, and other related materials.

In 1981, 25 years after Dr. Kinsey’s death, the Institute for Sex Research was renamed The Kinsey Institute for Sex Research.

Due to renovations, Kinsey Library open by appointment only. No tours/exhibits available until further notice.
