“It is what it is..............fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Titillating...perhaps. Offensive...depending on one's values and beliefs. Wide ranging exhibits and photos/pictures. Don't take this place too seriously...its fun and voyeuristic...with a sense of adventure and experimentation.

“Funny but no real museum. OK for 4€”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

You really have to go there to smile and laugh.
Consider it as a fun attraction rather than a museum.
I didn't like the thousands of very similar and boring pornographic pictures. It is not a real museum and although there are some explanations (but they are really not enough), 99 % of people are not there to learn even a few bits of the "culture of sex" (such as in China).
There are many (to my opinion) interesting texts in German, French and Dutch but none of them are translated in English.
No queue to go in but it was crowded on a rainy Friday of July but what it was to be expected. It doesn't take long to make the tour. I'd say 30 min.

Unsuitable for disabled persons. Even 20 years olds will have to pay attention while climbing the incredibly steep stairs. I can also see how crowded dim little rooms can make some people incomfortable.
Marylin Monroe was broken and they didn't consider hiding the buttons which only results in a scary alarm right now.

So, to recap: a fun place for a few laughs, not a real museum, no queue, the 4€ are worth it, you will have something to talk about with your friends.

“Just naked photos”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We went to the museum expecting to learn about the history of sex, how it was viewed in historic cultures, old-fashioned sex toys etc.. Instead, there were just thousands of nude photos and statues with very little information. More an exhibition of sex than a museum.

It was half interesting. There were an few funny things. The pictures were nasty. It was a good giggle but not anything great. Definitely NOT a must see.

“One big old porn collection”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Good for a little laugh it'll sure make for a bit of chat round the dinner table. Worth a visit if in the centre but don't go out your way to come here. Maybe take a trip here after sitting in a coffee shop - probably be a lot funnier!!
