“A lot of potential, but lacking imagination...”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

My husband and I visited this museum today, and were kind of disappointed. The exhibitions that they do have are good, but they are too few, especially for the price. You could do so much more! Its not worth the money.

“Don't spend your money and time.”

Shame on you New York.Worst museum I visit on my life.
The museum store was more fun then visiting two stores and
paying $19.00 per ticket.

“Skip it. Seriously.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

The storefront is cute and fun with te books/condoms/toys/bike etc. Do NOT waste your money going into the museum section. I had a Travelzoo deal so it was 1/2 price and STILL a waste of money.

“Fun but Small”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

A fun place to take out of town friends, especially from "small town America" because of course NYC is going to have a museum about sex, right? It's not up to the standard of the likes of Sexmuseum in Amsterdam, but maybe it will get there eventually.

“High priced - not much to see”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

My husband and I went to the Museum of Sex while visiting NYC. I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it! I felt that the tickets were high priced and there really wasn't much to see. The first floor of the exhibit was all about sexual content on the Internet and the second floor was sexual facts about animals (the basics are thing learned in biology class). I was a little disappointed and felt that we wasted our time and money. There is an extensive adult toy store as you walk into the building, but you don't need a ticket to shop.
