Went to see the punk exhibition but the highlight is the Leonor Fini exhibit, lots of her works and two films. There's a display of pervy stuff on the way out but it can be avoided!!

Hi Jarett, While we agree that our gift shop is exceptional, we are disappointed to hear that you felt let down by the Museum. Our content tends to focus on sex through fine art and culture but our exhibits do periodically rotate. I hope that...More

This place has a shop with a wide range of soft to hard play. Books, gifts, toys etc. the museum portion was very cool and educational. A fun place to visit and would recommend it if you have the time while in 5 ave.

This is an art gallery not a museum, 2 floors containing quite boring artwork by an Italian/Argentinean feminist and another with some Punk Era articles and artefacts. The (sex) shop below is good but the name of the attraction is misleading.More
