A complete waste of $19. The only thing I learned about was duck necrophilia (in a room that only consisted of posters and captions). This museum could have been so interesting/ educational/ fun but was in fact simply a scam. Do not go.

Stumbled upon this place on my way to lunch. There's a shop front selling the usual sex stuff. The museum entrance fee is $19 so you would expect something interesting . There were 3 exhibitions that day - Linda Lovelace, animals , and "Funland". The 1st 2 are small exhibits, and self -explanatory . Also quite boring. Funland is a... More

They are on the right track with what they have, but there is so little to see that you are left feeling like u wasted your money.

We thought this would be a bit of fun to go and have a look and actually went out of our way to find the shop. You walk in to a very well presented sex shop with all manner of toys and accessories available. Quite a cool shop in fact. We bought our two tickets once we were finished having... More

First of all if you're shy or closed minded don't bother! For those of you who are open minded and have a bit of sense of humor this is a fun and unique place to check out. We were there as part of a bachelor party and took the tour which had a variety of interactive games and info. The... More

There were seven (7) of us that went to the museum. We are mid century adults and we had a gas. Too much fun. You must jump up and down in the air boob room. And shoot at the penis' in the arcade. And you enter through the gift shop which has all kinds of stuff to take home in... More

Maybe if it wasn't overpriced I could give this place 3 stars, but after walking out of here I felt ripped off. The exhibits were mediocre, the staff looked like they didn't want to be there and the best part about the entire "so called" museum was the shop. Don't waste your money or time, at around $19/adult after taxes,... More

Disappointed is an understatement. Let's begin with an entire room dedicated to Deep Throat, a 1972 porn flick, blown up to the size of the wall onto which it was being projected, and the entire story of Linda Lovelace and her claim to fame laid out on large canvases throughout the rest of the room. First of all, do you... More

Went here with the bf. He saw the Lovelace documentary and wanted to see what they had in their exhibit. They played the Lovelace deep throat scene on a big screen on a loop and had some pictures and writing on the walls in the room. Honestly my bf already knew all of the stuff and more. We then went...
