  • This place definitely isn't for the squeamish, it can get pretty raunchy but it's also filled with tons of cool and interesting tidbits. All depends on your comfort level really. If the idea of this s...  more »
  • Is small, interesting things but with a lot more to be desired... activity extra costs apart.

  • I wasn't really sure what to expect for this museum and while interesting, it was different than I was expecting. Many areas are covered such as animals (strangely maybe the most interesting), sex toy...  more »

  • Wound up somehow paying almost 60 dollars for 2 tickets, and the coat check is an extra charge. You can get through the whole museum in about an hour and a half. It's a hilarious and interesting experience that you won't find anywhere else though. If you can afford it, you should go at least once. Wouldn't recommend going more than once because it is overpriced, and the installations don't really change at all. Even if you don't go into the museum itself, there's a bar and sex toy shop, if that tickles your fancy.
  • I think is a must do in NY! Very interesting collections and gift shop is on point! You cant leave without trying the jump for joy attraction and the boobie shot in the disco area! Yum!
  • 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.
  • Don't waste your time and money there. This is merely a sex shop and a tourist trap.
  • Good experience....My country Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) was featured on a Poster hung on a wall, stating about our Coconuts which is good for Sex...I was really surprised to find a poster about our smsll country Ceylon at the Museum of Sex in New York which is thousands of miles away. We are famous for our Tea...but I didnt know about Coconuts...Anyway came back n tried it...😆
