    Equally Informative and Fun!
    I loved the current exhibit by Portia Munson. We started out learning a lot and ended with fun, interactive games. You won’t feel pressure to participate in or look at anything you don’t want to. Great to go with friends or a partner! Hands down the most fun I had while in the city!

    You won’t forget this one! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
    This unique experience takes you through a wondrous wind on the history of sexuality. Please go into this blindly and be impressed by this unique experience. You won’t wanna forget this exhibit. This walk through takes about an 1. 1/2 hours sometimes 2, so plan your day accordingly! The staff were very helpful in each section and were very humorous! Lastly one of the greatest things about this experience is its closing times. It is typically opens from 1PM to 10PM. NOTES: This is a 21+ building and they won’t let you in without a valid ID.|| This museum could be considered vulgar or inappropriate to viewers so be warned and let your viewers know. You will experience exibits with real adult films and comedic interactive experiences.|| Overall 10/10 stars. 💫❤️💕

    Awesome time!
    You must purchase tickets online.. Even when you arrive they make you purchase online while in line and then they'll scan you in via bar code.. Staff are very friendly! Fun experience and more than I expected..

    Fun & Informative!
    The museum was informative and the games area was fun! The employees were helpful! Very inclusive space all around. Lots of light and sound, so be prepared for that. Everything was clean, including the bathrooms, which I appreciated very much!

    Much better than years ago
    I’ve been here once before, about 4-5 years ago and although it was fun it was very museum ish. This time around it was a mix of a typical museum and a lot of interactive games, short films and even a slide that brings you down to a bar with more games and photo opportunities. When we left the museum you can also do some shopping, hop in the Photo Booth and get a penis or vagina waffle outside at the pop up booth. Loved my experience so much more this time around.

    Do not miss!
    I can't begin to tell you how fun this experience was. It was educational while highly entertaining. Every element of the carnival portion was a barrel of laughs. From bull riding, the slide, the games, to poll dancing and peep hole tugging. Do not miss this, so worth the money.

    GO! NOW!
    Amazing! Went solo and loved it! Engaging and interactive with everything you need in a museum! I think it would be amazing to go with a love interest or a bestie you’re really close with but solo was just fine! You can go through it quickly but I recommend taking your time and enjoying each exhibit to its full potential!
    The more the merrier, we say! Thanks for the kind words.

    Math puzzles and games
    Fun experience. Not all exhibits worked, but many were tactile and provided an experience for every willing participant. Some volunteers instead of explaining mainly "played" themselves. Puzzles were interesting and thught provoking for everyone.
    Please come again!

Came for my birthday! Absolutely adored every exhibit, loved playing the games with my partner, and loved seeing all gift store options. The staff was so nice and lovely, especially the girl checking tickets and the person running the Tunnel Of Love. ’m already planning on coming back if i ever return to NYC.
