  • I see that there are negative comments from the site. Apparently unaware of the essence of a Museum: inform or entertain on your subject. If you are looking for a place where to find SEXUAL COPULATION, here it is not. If you are instead looking for a venue to learn about sexuality, from the point of view of creativity and human ingenuity (and animal), this probably is your place. Inside you get materials, machines, pictures, videos, entertainment and even a booth of VIRTUAL reality (I recommend in large groups, not couple). You can also get souvenirs and reports. In particular captivated me and sensitized that was exhibited during my visit: Peru and transsexualism. Remember: have questions? Comments? I am to help you!

  • I'm surprised to see the low rating, I absolutely loved this place. Tasteful exhibits, friendly and knowledgeable staff (and where else will you talk to a stranger about this kind of stuff with a 99% guarantee that they don't end up bein a creeper), and the "relief" areas are a nice touch. I wonder if anyone actually uses those... It's a bit pricey, and the gift shop isn't exactly cheap, but it's an interesting, quirky experience that you can do inside of an hour and then be on your way.
  • Beautiful! Tasteful and really a intriguing experience. Loved the first exhibit so much. Truly beautiful. Didn't do the bouncy room or the VR but still had a great time! Super nice staff! Knowledgeable and talkative. The animal room was odd but informative. The Vice room was probably the most underwhelming but still beautiful and ultimately amazing. The films were odd but in my realm. Loved exploring the edge of morality and sexual openness with my partner.
  • Great place for a first date, might not be the best place for an older crowd. The animal exhibits are the best part and VERY informative. Free coat check, also with a bar off the to side that you can go to before or after you are done with museum.
  • The museum is nice and the bounce house is a nice gimmick. Still it was kind of bland to be honest. I'd recommend going if you're by the area, but by no means build a day around it
  • This was an art gallery with one room showing sex relics. Amsterdam was much better. Don't waste your money on the museum. The shop is free to walk round.
