  • A fascinating museum with a diversity of works of all nationalities. Beautiful and extremely delicate works. A very good discovery. Do a warm welcome by the owner himself.

  • The collection is huge and very well documented! The lady that greets us is ultra friendly and very caring. It is true that the price is a little high (€ 10 per person) but when you love the art that need the help.

  • It is a private collection containing artistic sexual objects, statues, miniatures and paintings- 10€/person, cash only. However, if you are looking for more “pornography” than art and craftsmanship, ...  more »

  • The concept seemed intriguing and at the allure of having to ring a bell to gain entry was exciting, but unfortunately this is where the fun stopped. To call this place a "museum" is misleading - it is more of a "small personal collection of artifacts in someone's house." Very little information given on any of the artifacts - was quite often just a country and a date. This gives no information on the history of the piece, nor the artist. Also disappointing to see so much ivory on display. I understand these are historical pieces when carving ivory was generally accepted, however I would not have visited this place had I known. Save your money and visit one of the other dozens of museums in Brussels.
  • Very cool place, nice lady explaining, helpful and friendly. Just i wished we could take some pictures.
  • The place is very small and was way too crowded to enjoy the art. Still an interesting place.
  • Lovely curated, more than 600 pieces from a private collection. If you are interested in the portrayal of erotics over the past centuries this is definitely worth going. Very nice curators and guides, that help you out with anything you would like to know.
  • Somewhat comprehensive museum with an impressive personal collection of over 600 pieces of art, in a small house which the owner, Dr Guy Martens, has bought for the very purpose of hosting his collection as a museum. An establishment of fine art for connoisseurs of history of art, which makes appear the Amsterdam museum of eroticism almost as a trivial sex shop.
