My husband and I had so much fun shopping with the sale person Eric. We bought some quality stuff and enjoyed the education we got from him on product chemistry and product uses. The store hours are longer than the museum. (I did not hear much enthusiasm for the actual museum so we just went for the store.)

It has some really good history! Didn't know there was a brothel travelers guide to 19th century NYC! Make sure to leave time for the gift shop.

I went through this museum with a couple of friends to round out a day of sightseeing. The entrance fee is about $20 once they added on the tax. It is multiple floors of exhibits including the history of porn, animal sex, sex toys, and a very odd "kinesthetic" camp ground exhibit. It was expensive for what you see and... More

Ok so lets be strait, Me & My Sister saw this in the NYC pass book and thought what the hell? we had pretty much done all the main attractions and wanted something to kill the time. Upon arrival I was impressed, it was very modern and you walked strait into a sex shop. We were greeted warmly and offered... More

We were at a loss for something to do so we wondered in as we stumbled across this museum. It's been set up well and there is a lot of content they even have a bouncy castle and tents. It was a bit of a laugh and filled in the afternoon. Prudes should steer clear

Initially i didn´t plan visit this Museum. I just passed by and saw it. So I decided to try it. Entrance is like a sex shop. The Museum is devided into a few parts. There is very interstesting exposition which conduct a survey of porn from the very beginning. One part of the Museum focus on animal sex. There is... More

Some of the exhibitions were a little odd, but i can appreciate the underlying point they were trying to get across. One of the exhibits had really dark lighting and though i know it was to tie in tandem with the theme, it was hard to read the words off the walls! At some point it started to hurt my... More

Not much to the museum. I guess the gift shop was the highlight. There are stairs that are creepy that you must use in order to see the exhibits, not the type of museum Inwould recommend or ever go back to.

I was excited to go here when I discovered it online. Very close to Time Square. The shop was pretty cool with lots of toys, books, and other items to use in the bedroom. There were employees there to help you figure out how to use toys and compare! The museum itself was interesting. Historical letters, drawings, and items from... More
