We decided to stop by here during a rainy day after seeing an advert on the subway about "Funland". It was quite a fun place, although without the Funland exhibit I am not sure it would have been as enjoyable. The first exhibition we saw was rather graphic so be prepared! A good way to spend a rainy/cold day, but... More

The most interesting thing was the animal sex exhibit... Does that make me weird? The mirrored funhouse maze where you try to find the G Spot in the dark was fun too, and only slightly more difficult than the real thing. Not worth a trip on its own, but if you're in the FlatIron district with an hour to kill,... More

Seemed this place was left short of what it might be. Has potential but lacks depth and span. A whole room for Linda Lovelace? Please. So much they missed. Fun for 20 minutes though. If u don't care about 20 bucks, well worth it.

I would have rated this awful but they were saved by the bouncy house. It wasn't worth the $20 that I paid for entry. I expected more than what they had with the exception of the bouncy house. This one had you surrounded by breasts of all sizes and skin tones. That was fun! But everything else... Not so much.... More

The Museum of Sex was not what I expected, but I'm still glad that we went. It may not necessarily be worth the money, but it's a unique and different experience. I hadn't seen video footage of Paris Hilton giving a blowy before, so I guess there's that! I loved the gift shop; we probably had the most fun there.... More

Considering the average price for a museum is at the $20 - $30 mark, I thought I would get a lot more for my money. The first room is completely disjointed from the rest of the walk, the second room talks about a porn star with a graphic video, and after that it's about plants and animals... with a fun... More

This place is a total rip off. It's neither amusing or erotic. The whole place is shabby. Interesting that the tour ends in the cafe/bar area which is probably the best feature of this overrated seedy expensive tourist trap. If you want to see erotic art, pay what you want at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If you want to... More

This place was quite interesting! They have it set up in 3 different rooms, each focused on a separate aspect of sex. They do have a room that some reviewers called "a tribute to porn." Well, DUH!!!! YOU ARE IN A SEX MUSEUM! They do give some info on each person, and some of the facts are, well, unique! The... More

I was so disappointed with this place. They had three floors of stuff that could fit on 1. I expected some history and more interactive stuff or trivia. It was expensive and I felt ripped off.
