This is not a museum. It is a collection of drawing and sketches by a European "artist" (Fini - never heard of her)-- none very erotic and certainly none very interesting. The movie about her life is ridiculously boring. The admission fee is outrageous. The...More

Joami, First off, thank you so much for taking the time to share you thoughts! Based on your review, it sounds like you may be referring to an exhibit of Japanese Photographer Nobuyoshi Araki which closed several months ago. While we are disappointed to hear...More

Ok, as a number of reviews have already stated, this is not a museum of porn. Its a mishmash of art exhibits (about a sexually strong female painter/designer), punk, and stag films. For the price, I was disappointed that there wasn't more information on the...More

We were disappointed with this attraction. Rooms of a photographic display which was boring. Only one room of actual exhibits. No real effort to chronicle a history. We felt it was a total waste of money.More

If you want to spend $16 and climb a ton of stairs,then this is the place to go. They have a section that they charge extra which I found ridiculous, . This place is a rip off with a boring sex shop attached to it.
