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.

I learned a lot about a specific artist and her sexual influences through her art before I actually learned anything about the history of sex. Plus, there wasn't much history to learn from I feel. It was more about how to shock the audience more...More

This is a very interesting museum. Despite its name the exhibits are mostly 'PG' ratings, and they tend to be depressing, disturbing and generally weird. The best part of the museum is the store, which is free, and if you like colorful and unusual dildos...More

This was a great surprise! The negative ratings here are pretty unfair to me. Perhaps certain types of people expect something else. What an excellent and beautiful exhibition I saw about Leonor Fini. I never even heard of her before but found that she's a...More

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.
