My boyfriend & I went to the museum of sex it was cool. It was small when it comes to the exhibit. It was fun to see what they had.

You are left with the "is that is" feeling. Maybe our expectations were too high but we thought it would be much much more. For $20 each it's not worth it. Fun for 15 minutes. Overall Meh.

I heard about this through a Travelzoo local deals offer. I purchased the two for one for a future visit. We didn't use the voucher until a year or more after it expired due to Hurricane Sandy and the good news is that the voucher was still good for the money spent (the deal expired but the price paid was...

4 small box rooms, extremely sparsely occupied by some reproduction prints of a 70s porn film, so bizarre contraptions (and not in an interesting way) and a shop. Oh and a completely pointless mirror maze staffed by a bunch of vacuous college students. Would be outraged if we hadn't managed to get in for free, due to the New York... More

Room 1 had a new retro photographs, room 2 was a "funland" exhibit with a mirror maze and a climbing wall of naughty bits. The 3rd room was about animals with again small and very old photographs. The 4th room was the shop. This was the... More

It's a small museum, so it can't be expected to cover sexuality to any great extent, but what they did have was facinating. They had a great deal of sex-related art on display when I was there, as well as exibits on sexuality in animals, sexuality over the course of history, pornography, etc. Definitely a fun way to spend a...

Been to this museum twice now, once in October 2011 and again in 2014. I enjoyed the first visit better, a lot more on offer, more exhibits. So I am basing this review on my last visit. The first exhibit was okay, all about Linda Lovelace, a big projection on the wall of her movie 'deep throat'. The second exhibit,... More

Like a bad date, a bit of a let down! Quite expensive to get in, then once in a serious of poor photographs, stories of porn actors and actresses and graphic movies only there to shock. Displays look garage made. We went out of curiosity and were severely disappointed.

you are going to get more sex out of Natural Museum of History, than out of this museum. We got in for free with a NY Pass, otherwise it's a complete waste of money. We were expecting fascnating displays and got sad pictures of animals doing it. Depressing.....
