“A small funny museum”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had heard from friend about this place, and curiosity made us have a look inside while walking down La Rambla. The place is small, it is not really what I think a museum should be : lots of items on display are copys, not originals, and there is no real scenography or museography involved. Still the place is a bit funny... for adults only.

“More for humour”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Set above the shops, along a dark(ish) stairwell, you wouldn't go wrong for missing it if it wasn't for the museum guy standing outside the door with a big sign signally what was there.

This was more like someone's house collection of pictures through the ages, poorly framed and exhibited across a series of rooms, than a museum. With a lack of information about how sex and erotica was perceived back in the day, you pretty much assume it's probably the same as how it is today. As a 'museum', I also expected art pieces from well-known names showing how erotica was depicted throughout the days of uncertain economic climates. Unfortunately you don't get any of this, but only photographed prints of sexual images.

The 'erotic garden' gave light relief with more random pictures of greenery and wildlife of an explicit nature. But again with no information where the pictures were from. I felt I could have printed out an image from the internet and stuck it onto the wall myself.

I came away from the building feeling more like I'd been somewhere seedy, rather than a museum. Oh, and I had to pay for entry! Only visit if you have time to spare would be my recommendation.

“Not the best the city has to offer.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Only standout was the ex-Spanish king's personal pornography collection. Everything else can be found online!

Only if you have spare time and have seen everything else in Barcelona.
