  • Funny Museum with series of photographs and objects on the sex but not to visit absolutely, ticket price not excessive (€5) but sincerely thrown for what it offers.

  • Et forferdelig museum, eller kan vi kalle det museum. kjøp heller et pornoblad og du har vært der. Anbefales ikke.  more »

  • Been a while since I've been, but it's definitely an enjoyable visit. It may just be me, but there is something about it that brings out your childish side and gives you a few giggles along the way, but there's also a good mix of genuinely interesting parts. It's also reasonably price and a short visit too, which can be helpful if you want to get out of the weather, for example. Worth a look.
  • Good value for money. It's got some interesting things but also some great people-watching. Great for a hen-do. Compared to the sex museum in NYC, this one is 1000% better.
