Entrance fee is way to high! It is not worth more than a tip (=5 usd). The "museum" provides some written information about sex life of mammals which you can also read at home in a book. Then they provide a penis game and a mirror room where you have to find the exit. What does this have to do... More

My two girlfriends and I visited the MoSex semi-randomly. We found that they had a coupon on their website that we could each email to ourselves for a few bucks off admission. We started our visit in the basement with a very strange art exhibit. Lots of puppets with moving...parts. No explanation at all as to what the artist had... More

You will need a workshop on NASA to learn how to open the lub or oil they sell over there. Not practical at all and nothing you wont find anywhere else. Besides this, which made me feel dumb by buying, I enjoyed everything else.

Regular adult admission was $17.50 and senior museum admission was $15.25, there is an additional $1.00 for coat check but you could actually hang on to your coat because the museum can be visited in well under 30 minutes easily. The museum just needs more exhibits and information to make it a good value. I had no real interest in... More

Very average. $over priced entry. Weird layout. One room dedicated to Miss Lovelace, interesting but can be a little too much in the morning. Another room dedicated to animals, not interesting. And thats it! I was expecting way bigger things! Save your money.

Thank goodness we went for free with the NY pass because the regular price of admission is way more than the museum is worth. $18. There's a weird puppet exhibit in the basement. One floor is dedicated to the first porn star. Another floor has a boob bounce house and body part climbing wall. Another exhibit is animal sex. The... More

It is my first time here. We got the 3 attractions New York pass and this was our first stop. While it was interesting I wouldn't spend 18 to visit it again.

I could not wait to come here. Expected a museum full of artifacts and information from thousands of years ago until now. (or maybe even hundreds). For the cover price (almost $20), you get a room dedicated to Linda Lovelace, which was okay. Would have been nice to have a bit more variety here? There is also a room dedicated... More

Our hotel (The Mave) is on the same block & we had talked previously about visiting last time we were in NYC. I've visited the Sex Museum in Amsterdam and the one in New York has a better mixture of education and fun things to do. We stopped by as it was raining all day and it was a good... More
