  • We went here during our trip to NYC and so happy that we did. Each floor had a different experience and was amazing. You go at your own pace and no one is there pressuring you or watching you look at everything on the walls. There are videos to pictures to arcade games and slides. My favorite floor was the punk era floor, as I really enjoyed that genre. You're able to take pictures inside and when you're done, you end at a sex shop. Honestly, it's the perfect adult date night you can ask for. I've done nothing but rave about it to all of my friends. I look forward to my next trip to NYC to visit again. This was the highlight of my NYC trip 🥰
  • My girlfriend and I visited the Museum of Sex last weekend and were both thoroughly impressed. They have some fascinating exhibits and I found myself learning more than I could have imagined. Also enjoyed the Punk Lust exhibit. The staff were friendly and helpful to patrons - at least that was our experience. Definitely a museum everyone should visit at least once. Maybe more frequently for the shop alone!
