  • This museum is actually a good time (for adults). Plenty of exhibits and displays that show different erotica, education, and history of sexuality. It's not a huge place but it still packs a lot of in...  more »
  • Evening visit to the Museum just off the Empire State Building. We saw that the entrance is included in the NYC pass. Immediately at the entrance you enter the most classic of sex shops, the Museum is on the lower level. Here you pass to inflatable dolls, vibrators and anything resembling sex, with representations (botched) of sexual situations with the Dummies. A crazy New York disappointment, since we are expecting much more. Don't go there unless you're absolutely, owners of the NYC pass and pass around here.

  • Very well done. Lots of information about history, changes and definitely interesting. There are 4 sections in the museum and 3 of them are quite good. Not sure about the "interactive" part with the t...  more »

  • I didn't actually go inside the museum but I've heard rave reviews from my friends. I did go into their shop though and they have a nice selection. There are a lot of shop attendants around to answer your questions about the various products, and they're very knowledgeable about each one. I'd love to get the chance to actually visit the museum section next trip! Their toys are pricey though, but it's a good place to get a feel of the products you're looking for.
  • DO NOT GO! This is not a museum, at all! This place isn't even worth one star. Have you ever been to a museum about the size of three apartments? When you enter, there's no museum, it's a freaking sex/gift shop, and they want you to buy buy buy. Then you have to buy tickets, $20, spendy. (Almost the same price as metropolitan museum, but even metropolitan's bathrooms are more interesting than this place). The so-called museum has only 3 floors with very limited space. Almost all things you find there can be found on the internet, and you will just be watching some old porn clips and pictures with some misleading ambiguous side notes. Like WTF. There consist no actual museum-ish stuffs, neither it's educational enough. And they charge you extra, you heard me, extra, to experience this boob jumping thing, and the thing is just a freaking plastic held fake boob thing. The thing is old, worn, worthless and with bunch of duct tapes on it. Right, they don't even bother making it look new for you. Yep, you pay extra and they only let you stay there for 2min. And everyone should figure it's just about the duration people take pictures with each other. That's right, they want you to take pictures and advertise for them, once you do that, you are out. Then as you exit the museum, guess what. Yep, you are back to the sex/gift shop, oh boy better you spend more money huh?!. This is one of those places with shiny flashy outfit but empty inside, no solid content, nor enough content, shallow, hollow. So DO NOT GO there, it's not a museum at all! Complete waste of time and money.
  • Santos is rude, disrespectful, and an utter disgrace to customer service. My friend and I hadn't been in there for even 3 minutes before Santos decided to demand my friend's attention in a manner that can only be described as, calling one's dog. We were unable to enjoy this museum on our first trip to New York, due to Santos' disgusting tone and behavior.
  • Terrible museum. It's the size of my apartment, two rooms. Some educational fotos and lots of reading everywhere. Only decent thing is the toy shop. Waste of money and time
  • The museum was much smaller then expected. Majority of the place was very dim lit so it was impossible to read any of the information provided on the walls. After paying $20.00 per person, which I felt should have included everything, they charge you additional fees (i.e- the booby bounce and jump area) $3/pp for 2 minutes which I was told they never charged before. This place is ridiculous. After wanting to go for so long- I was very disappointed.
