  • Someone else got it in another review. It's essentially a sex shop with a small museum attached. Some of the exhibits are quite informative but there's isn't all that much to see. The interactive area...  read more »
  • At $21+ for the exhibits and $3.00 extra for participation in an event, you would think the museum would be better organized and more fun. In fact, the displays are just passable and not very memorabl...  read more »
  • My partner and I decided to give this a go and really enjoyed it! Tickets cost $19 but there are promotional flyers with $3 off in some places. We found the exhibits very interesting and entertaining....  read more »
  • DO NOT GO! This is not a museum, at all! This place isn't even worth one star. 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. Most of the 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. 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.
  • 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.
  • not even one star. My boyfriend and I went there on a Friday that they are supposed to close at 11. We arrived at 10:01 pm, they said that we only were able to be at the store 1 minute we couldn't get in after walking for 30 mins to get there because after 10 they don't sell more tickets. For just 60 secods we walked all that for nothing. Very disappointed.
  • Interesting Place, yea it's about sex but we are all adults here. You actually learn a few things & have a nice time, the Jello Boob shots are awesome by the way!!
  • This museum turned out to be a lot more interesting than we expected. The interactive "campground" exhibition was kinda weird though, and the bouncy castle had a long line. But the rest of the exhibitions were really good.
