  • Is a good program to night because the museums close all or almost all of the 5:00. But I don't have anything special. Pictures and some funny dolls. To laugh. The staff is super arrogant and nasty.

  • A fun Museum, without great historical interest. More photos and paintings than anything else. Some explanations on the sexual customs. .. Not too expensive, to do the evening if nothing to do

  • This museum is an interesting collection of sex related items and artifacts. It's not for the fainthearted nor those who find this sort of thing offensive.
