As an intimacy coach and a sex educator , this does not worth your money nor time. The exhibit is quite boring and poorly presenting the richness of human sexuality. The store, which is placed right as you walk in is well decorated and offers a verity of sex toys that are top notch.

It is good for students who may be doing research on the history of sex. The museum has tried to be creative but fails miserably. The entrance is on the... More

It was full of facts. And at the very end you have the option to jump (for 1 minute) in an inflatable boob jump house. Not really worth the money..

A variety of explicit exhibits covering all aspects of sexuality. There is also an erotic themed carnival games, a bouncy castle of breasts and lot more. There is also a gift shop to purchase some kinky items and etc.

Well I'm afraid to say it has changed since 2009 and for the worse in some ways. More about the history and seems to have a lot less artifacts. Shame as was really looking forward to going back. But was let down

More than just a bunch of sexual information. It's a bit of history presented in an artistic way. Beautifully organized and on display. Take a journey in the museum of sex and learn more than you ever knew existed about sex.

I was surprised when in NYC to see a museum by this name. It is an interesting place to stop in. The museum is very full of information about the history of that little thing we all love. May return again.

This is a mixed review. The majority of the stuff presented wasn't terribly interesting, but the first floor exhibit was pretty fun. The gift shop was also had some neat sexy items as well.
