Was not the same as last time we visited. It was all about animals and Linda Lovelace. Not interested in animals and how they have sex. It was gross

Exhibits were very graphic, not really much of a museum...just a all a bit weird really...more like something out a 1970's movie... I suppose it would appeal to some, we only went out of curiosity and it was free with the New York pass...

You can get more in depth information by turning off the spam filter on your email account. Other than standing in a brightly lit room with strangers watching Linda Lovelace deep throat Harry Reems, the only thing of interest was the display of mating techniques in the animal kingdom. So much potential, so little value.

Very limited "exhibits" with too much emphasis on Linda Lovelace with an entire floor dedicated to her. Only interesting part about this was the animal exhibit..then again all of this could've been found on wikipedia. It may be fun for some 17 year olds what with the inflatable fun house made to resemble boobs and other kiddie games. Certainly not... More

My friends and I went to the museum of sex the other day to see the new "Funland" exhibit. You first have to walk through the store. It was was clean and bright with dildos every where and interesting books. We got a bunch of "sexy" souvenirs. Some exhibits are shocking, some embarrassing and the new one was fun. It... More

nothing interesting there. Everything could have been learnt off wikipedia. It isn't really a museum; more like a display of knowledge e.g. animals etc. I wouldn't recommend this.

The only positive thing about this place is the coffee shop attached to it (which you can use without paying to enter the museum!) Overall very little to see and the exhibition focuses mainly on Linda Lovelace and the sexual habits of animals. Overall not worth the money, or time, as you can do this museum in under half an...

It's a shame that a place with such an awesome name has only the crappiest of sex toys and accoutrements. The bong display had more money put into it than the actual store stock. We were so unimpressed with the store that we didn't even bother with the "exhibits". We figured if the store quality was that low, the exhibits... More

Very disappointing. Little of any interest. A hotchpotch of exhibits and curiosities. It barely took 20 mins to look around. A pretty full on projection of Linda Lovelace doing her stuff, so don't go if you are easily shocked . In fact, I would give it a miss altogether
