Pricey and most displays were in Korean. Very hokey. Recommend the Love Park outside Jeju city instead.

There was very little descriptions in English but just looking at the statues and pictures gave you a good enough idea. It was very quiet when I went and only saw a couple of other people. Would recommend it to anyone.

Very interesting inside and out. The first floor is mostly modern about sexual preference, health and rights, but it is 95% in Korean. I would recommend to bring a Korean friend who doesn't mind translating if you are interested in that part. There was also a big wall of history at the very front which was all in Korean that...

We walked through the Sex and Health Museum and took some crazy pictures! It is a large museum with many different themed areas. There is a sex education hall showing sexual positions, differences in male and female, pregnancy and more. Other halls have sexual movies playing, displays of sexual cultures from all over the world, lifelike sex dolls and the... More

Very tasteful and informative. We were hesitant at first but figured we might as well take advantage of seeing what a sexually suppressed country could teach us :) The gift shop was a little lacking on museum related material and seemed to carry just local touristy items.

Having been to the sex museum in China near Shanghai, I was somewhat disappointed by this one, mostly because I found it more biased and sexist than I would expect a museum to be. It started out good with a fairly progressive and balanced presentation, albeit almost entirely in Korean, talking about sexual freedom and equity. But the vast majority... More

At 12usd per pax, and with the first floor being all in korean, we think it's a rip off... It's the first time we've been to such a museum, and we were quite disappointed to not be able to read a word of what they're saying. The second floor has english though, so it was slightly better... But 12usd... we... More

Asians are usually more conservative about this topic, so this is quite a special place in Asia, worth visiting!
