Honestly, this was more painful than a visit to a regular museum. The "interactive" portion was lame and a serious waste of time. Maybe if you're a bunch of teenagers looking for something to giggle about it'd be fun as it reminded me of a children's museum, only perverted. The best part about going here was the sex shop, and... More

Usually I don't complain about customer service because I know everyone has bad days. BUT this place, theeeeee worst I have experienced in a long time. Place was interesting but the service was the deal breaker.

The best part is the booby bouncy house. Spend the extra $2 and do it! The rest of the museum is very informative and there is a more hands on part as well.

The place is horrible, the exhibition is super boring and it looks like a teenager's high school project. Thanks god it was include in the New York pass and I didn't "pay" the 18 dollars per ticket.

I went to this museum because it seemed interesting and it was included in the New York Pass. I did not like the experience, it seems more centered in porn than in teaching about the science of Sex, which was what I was expecting. The are a few exhibits but it is mainly a sex store.

Besides a few dozen pictures and movies from the late 1800s and early 1900s, there is literally nothing else to see. No sculptures, no artifacts, no fun information... Half of the museum is dedicated to weird "activities" which are empty camping tents with noise and mirrors in it. It's super disappointing and not worth the price of the ticket. What... More

The worst $40 I have spent. They should be ashamed of charging anything to go in this place. Its a sex store. A small one at that. I've been to sex toy stores that are much bigger and entertaining then this shoe box size place. Spencer's adult section at the mall is more entertaining and FREE. As far as the... More

Nothing worth writing home about, feels like a history lesson about porn. Not worth the entrance fee The boob bouncy castle at the end is poor, you queue for about 45 minutes and get 45 seconds, after signing over all your rights, including anything that the staff night do to you I've visited the sex museum in Amsterdam, which is...
