Cute little place to check out but I would skip the actual museum portion. Other than some very interesting footage o. Animals having sex that you could probably find on YouTube I didn’t feel the museum portion was worth it. The store however has s...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

if you are hoping to be titilated, best to save your money. Some interesting exhibits to be sure, but some, like animals having sex, missed the mark (in my opinion). Then again, i'm sure no one under 30 has ever seen a condom vending machine....More

This was our first time at the museum. Although I had read that although this was the Museum of Sex, there really was not much to "excite you" (unless you are younger/immature). The museum was very interesting, with some pretty cool exhibits (although we felt...More

I liked all the different exhibits and how it took you through the mind of a photographer. The bouncy house of boobs was why this is getting a 5 star rating. I can’t even believe how much fun I had in there as an adult....More

I went here YEARS ago with my friend and was honestly shocked by how graphic it was, right from the very start (in a good way, obviously). I went back recently and was bored. It was so tame. Never going back.More
