The museum is funny, lots of facts about sex seen from many different views. There was a room dedicated to women, animals, transsexuals etc. It was fun to do as a couple but the price was high!

In my opinion you will not get anything new from this place, I thought there will be new ideas or exploring old sexual lifestyles and cultures, but it’s not. So you can find all the information online about how animals are breeding and stuff like...More

A very interesting place to visit while in the city. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. It's not what you think. My wife and I saw all ages in the museum. It is very educational.

It was okay-ish, had to pay extra for the bounce room, and pay exta for the VR, which takes the ticket to a total of 40$ something, not worth it! It was cool, focused mainly on women, somethings i found creepy....

The front shop was interesting, not as good as other shops I’ve been in. The museum was interesting, but nothing I need to recommend to anyone else. The VR was very disappointing for me. They were running 30 minutes late from our appointment time and...More
