We spent an hour looking around the museum and it was quite enjoyable. There are several floors of exhibits, most of them interesting although some are a bit 'off the wall'.
There are two floors of pictures that are for sale so saying that there are seven floors of exhibits is a bit wide of the mark. Still worth a visit though.

Thank David C

...than paying a visit to Musee de l'Erotisme is a worthwhile trip while within the area of Pigalle.

You may have dropped by Pigalle to see the fames Moulin Rouge but take a couple of steps down the street from Moulin Rouge, cross a small street and viola! You will see Musee de l''Erotisme being next door neighbours to a Sex Shop. That's right, the whole street, left and right, is peppered with Sex Shops. Hence, stop being a prude and embrace the finer points of human erotic.

With that said, the museum is not technically a museum but more of a showcase of the Historical Perspective of Sex across different cultures and countries. From China, Japan, India (yes how can we forget the famed Kama Sutra), Europe to the comtemporary artistic, artsy fartsy to a comical modern twist of sexual content, visit this museum only if you are up for something different.

For those who are of a conservative nature, be warned that there may be some graphic videos or pictures that may make you blush.

I myself, having did extensive research on interesting places to visit in Paris and read fellow reviewers recommendations on this very site, decided to schedule a trip to Musee de l''Erotisme on the day of my Birthday! Right after paying a visit to Moulin Rough of course. =)

However, even for the open-minded like myself, I felt a little put off sex after having gone through 3 levels out of 7 levels of the museum.

Otherwise, I do recommend visiting this unique 'museum'! Worth a visit indeed!

Visited this during a long weekend visit to Paris . Thought it would have been a Erotic Museum rather than the Erotic Sales Gallery it is as the majority of the items seem to be modern and for sale .

We had an hour to fill before being able to book into our hotel room so decided, on the spur of the moment to visit this "different" museum as it was the nearest museum to where we were staying, and we were child-free for a change.

It was quite funny and not at all like any museums we had visited before!!

We did find quite a few exhibits funny, and a few a little odd...!

We actually enjoyed our visit and thought it was worth the 20 Euros paid to get in (for the two of us).
