    Save your $20 skip the mues go straight to the cafe or cocktail bar & don't get the beats me cocktail! More boring than mass! Very limited exhibits. Very prudish. No diversity. More nature than human.

    Was expecting a bit more, but informative and interesting nonetheless. Might check out their online site for current exhibits before heading over. <$20 for admission. Worth visiting at least once!

    Let's get awkward! The Museum of Sex is exactly what you think it might be. Leave your inhibitions at the door and educate yourself on the history of sex. It's truly a learning experience. Just do it.

    A very interesting and eclectic place to visit, demands an open mind! There are a couple of great exhibitions featured at the museum at the moment, and a bouncy castle of boobs!

    Not as risqué as it’s name would suggest. The exhibits are interesting, but half as much as the gift shop! Try and find a coupon for discounted admission.

    Use the restroom before coming here...I went in to the lady's room and was soooo disgusted, that I walked right out. The museum itself, the shop, and bar are otherwise very nice! :)

    The museum itself only takes an hour to see everything and closes late, so it's a good museum to go to when all the others have closed

    The place is pretty educational, has lots of fun things to look at and learn ..definitely worth visiting and don't forget to buy a souvenir or two before you leave

    The key draw is the shop; the price of admission is a little steep for what you get. Speaking of steep, expect to climb stairs; this tiny place is not wheelchair accessible.

  • Ashley K.

    If you don't want to pay to visit the exhibits in the museum you can enjoy what the store has to offer for free. Very good books & also products to choose from.

    Ashley Kiyana · May 18, 2012
  • Time Out New York

    Make sure you check out the museum's Oralfix Cafe. Equal parts apothecary and soda shop, it's filled with "potions" containing aphrodisiac ingredients to help you get it on.

    Time Out New York · September 10, 2010
  • Jacqueline F.

    All the exhibits have changed and I was very disappointed. There was nothing stimulating or exciting about it anymore. It was like a school outing. No erotica or visuals. Don't waste your money.

    Jacqueline Flores · August 20, 2013
  • Demi B.

    Never miss the cafe. Its in the basement. They serve good drinks plus you get $2 off by checking in. Bartender was very nice too. Will definitely be back.

    While the museum leaves a bit to be desired their shop is pretty awesome. If you are looking for a sexy gift for a friend or lover, check out their gift shop. It's awesome!

    Yolanda Shoshana · September 11, 2011

    Amazingly informative and super fun. Go back often as they constantly change their exhibitions and they're all orgasmic!

    If you’re looking for something interesting and quirky to do, come here. Don’t miss the OralFix aphrodisiac café, which serves up libido-revving treats and elixirs.

    MarieClaire · November 12, 2010

    Highlighting material and artifacts from different continents, cultures, times periods and media, the museum's permanent collection features over 15,000 artifacts. Make sure you check it out! Read more

    The burlesque exhibit is really good. Actually all of them are. It's a Museum you can actually have fun with your friends and so so interesting. Also, great store.

    Tany Monteiro · March 28, 2011
  • Daron Y.

    Small but interesting exhibits. Worth the visit considering there are not many sex museums out there anyway :)

    Daron Yondem · January 17, 2015
  • Liz Y.

    At first I thought the whole place would be trashy, but it's actually quite educational and well put-together. Only downside is that there aren't many exhibits.

    Awesome museum 4 floors and the 4th floor changes from time to time. Defintely have to go with ur girl and ur defintely buying something from the gift shop

    A bit short, but it was very fun. Highly recommend going with your lover/partner. Don't forget to get some goodies on your way out! ;)

  • Jackson G.

    The Linda Lovelace exhibit was depressing. The museum feels very sex negative overall. Watch out for the self indulgent dickhead who likes to scare people in the mirror hall. Meh.

    Jackson Gabbard · September 30, 2014
  • Flyboii J.

    I enjoyed the exhibits. Not the best place if you're trying to get someone in the mood (with all their STD/STI exhibits), lol. But, heyy it may work.

    Flyboii JIG · February 12, 2011
  • Booie

    You can buy the best sex toys but the museum itself is not as impressive as I hope it would be considering its a museum in New York

    Booie · April 9, 2015
  • Susanna D.

    It is horrible! Nothing to see! It is really expensive 17,50$, and there Is really nothing. The worst museum ever! Do not spend money there! Only the shop is nice!

    Susanna Demarchi · January 4, 2015
  • Ashley G.

    Sex ed at its best! Great for a date or a girls night out. I wasn't a fan of the food or drinks but the museum was good.

    Ashley Grossett · August 12, 2014
  • DailyCandy

    Sorry, it’s not a giant porn celebration. It’s actually an informative look into the history, evolution, and cultural aspects of human sexuality. That said, climax at the gift store.

    DailyCandy · February 26, 2014
  • Julianne G.

    Don't come here alone, people will think you're a creepo. On second thought, come here alone and buzzed, and you will have a great time!

    Prepare to spend a lot of time here. Every single exhibit/description is interesting here. Every. Single. One. Especially the porn level.

    Derrick See · November 29, 2009
  • Camilla B.

    A good exhibition and if you wanna spice up your own sex-life then go to the gift shop and check out the stuff there.

    Camilla Backman · May 5, 2012

    Maybe interesting for prude Americans - normal for Europeans. Must-see is the museum shop: no need for paying admission ...

    Interesting exhibits & done very tastefully but I thought the collection of sexual art was better @ WEAM in FL

    Call ahead to make sure the "Jump for Joy" breast moon-bounce is open. It seems to get closed for repairs on a regular basis.

    The R-rated museum presents the history and politics of sex with the motto, “You don’t think about Picasso seven times an hour.”

    This is not the boring museum you go to on a high school field trip. Adults only, informative, but lots of fun.

    I loved it!! The MoSex store is also an awesome think to know. I enjoyed myself very much.

    Get a New Orleans Brother cocktail downstairs. They just may let you down the absinthe before they toss it out.

    Kinda curious place to check out but for younger , myself no recommend for older age.

    first floor is erotic shop. second floor is about human and third floor is about animal sex.

    Check out the animal sex floor and see 2 pandas doing it, a deer threesome and find out which animal practices necrophilia.
