“Really interesting and shocking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This was a brilliant museum! I wasn't expecting so much due to the small fee, but we were there for ages looking at hundreds of photos from the ages, sculptures, artwork and so much more. It was super informative and very explicit (don't go if you're prudish.....or with your parents) but it wasn't seedy at all. A must!!

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

It was a very interesting place to visit. It seemed a little run down and in need of modernizing and updating.

“Good for a laugh!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

For 4 euros, its a bargain! You have to go in knowing what you are going to see is pretty graphic as I overheard some tourists tutting at some of the items - not sure what they were expecting... It provides a good giggle and you do come away having learnt a few things! It is certainly an eye opener and for such a small price, definitely worth a visit while you are there. Just don't take it too seriously and be open minded!

“Too much of a good thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We had time to kill and thought we might learn something ( we are only 60)!
This exhibition is well laid out and easy to walk around .
So many old photographs well displayed by the year they were taken and in such good repair. Nothing seems to have changed much over the years it was just more risqué back then and so many clothes to get out of!
The model of Marilyn Monroe was beautiful and while it was very repetitive it was well done and a different way to spend some time adding to my education...
Took a while to stop blushing!
