This wasn't the best place. The front store in the museum was nice enough. The exhibits were all vintage, so if that's not your thing I would pass. The semi hot dude at the front masturbation table dressed in nothing but a pair of booty shorts was small consolation for an otherwise ho hum experience.

After being to Amsterdam I was excited about comparing the one in New York to Amsterdam. This is not even close and disappointing to be honest. It did provide some brief history of sex in the USA but was quite boring. Not worth the trip.

This museum is a very interesting one...and literally what you'd expect from it. As you walk around its halls you can read up on animal reproduction, the history of porn, and how sex has evolved over many, many decades. It's about an 1.5 hour trip, but definitley an interesting one. The gift shop has some fun...souvenirs...as well.

We decided to take in the Museum of Sex as we were close by but we were really let down. The building was under construction so they offered us a reduced price of somewhere around $16. However, I don't believe the experience warranted even that. There was no interactive exhibitions or quirky things it was just three rooms of pictures... More

Great museum with a clear path to go through and a nice balance of many dimensions of sex that led to a visit that was both very educational and fun.

We learned some new facts here and had fun in the bouncy house. It was a different way to spend and hour or so on a rainy day. The products sold inside were overpriced. At the time, there was a $3 off coupon on their website.

We missed some exhibits because the museum was under construction so it seemed a little short for the price. The exhibits they had were very interesting, though.

This was an "enlightening" stop on our NYC exploring. We were able to, um, laugh our way through it.... I wouldn't recommend to those who are easily embarrassed!

A lot of interesting stuff... Especially interesting because the exhibition is decided in dif culture stands. But be careful if u r very sensitive person it can be too much for u in the end.

The lighting and displays worked together to make it a lot of fun and educational without ever having to check over your shoulder for creepy people. Plus, I really liked the truly educational components. Animal and human sexual activity is frankly presented without vulgarity or titillation. It's more like a fascinating documentary of a typically hidden curiosity. We were two... More
