  • This museum has taken the very wise decision to close. We don't lose there not much, only the owner will be enriched by the dispersion of a collection of rare mediocrity which although supposedly erotic, has neither head nor tail.

  • Many floors, I think 6, I haven't noticed that the emphasis on different topics. Very much Frank paintings, sculptures, and videos. Curious what people thought and practiced hundreds of years ago, and yes even so! In General, I like a man humble enough in this matter was openly amazed some submitted exhibits and not very yourself there comfortable felt. For show visited.

  • Fairly interesting, but I'm not sure how many of the items on display are actually authentic - their descriptions are left general and vague for a purpose I think.
  • This is a remarkable museum. Erotic? Certainly. Pornographic? Possibly in some areas, but presented tastefully. Spread over 7 floors, take the lift to the top and work your way down. Some of the sculpture work is exquisite and true works of art. A good 2 hours (or more) browsing on a wet day.
  • not really a museum, more voyeur than anything else. it's interesting though. there isn't much explanation to the artifacts and paintings, other than that they visibly look Asian or African or modern... Just a bunch of stuff with labels, but still interesting to see as a whole. i didn't realize this when i was there, but this museum is actually in a sex shop area, close to the 'famous' Moulin Rouge. when i saw it i thought 'this must be the cheap copy of the moulin rouge', as it was just a small, red windmill. it's actually the real thing.
  • There are really a lot of things! Very cool :)
  • The entrance gate is pretty small ;)
