Not knowing what to expect, I was surprised to be so moved by the Leonor Fini exhibit, called "Theater of Desire." It was very well procured and explained. I don't usually read all the captions, but they did a great job. I also appreciate that...More

I was super excited for this museum, however I was disappointed. There were a few interesting things throughout the museum, but overall two of the levels were geared towards the actual art of sex. I loved the gift shop however, it had some really interesting...More

Struggled to find anything interesting to see. $20 to get in - I should have asked for $19 in change! Save your money and time and don’t bother. A very few interesting displays but the rest was crap.

If you're staying in NY for so long and trying to kill time, this might be a good option for a change. It was surely interesting but nothing you can't learn online.More

Interesting exhibits spread over a few floors but was expecting the museum to be more interesting than it was. It was included in the New York Pass so at least I didn't have to pay extra. Some explicit sections as expectedMore
