"Quite overrated" New York City Off The Beaten Path Tip by sabur76

New York City Off The Beaten Path: 995 reviews and 1,312 photos

The Museum of Sex at first sounds very chic, hip and intellectual.

It's actually not very interesting at all.

The first floor was a fairly educational presentation on sex in the animal kingdom, mostly done with placards and videos.

The second floor was a somewhat educational presentation on sex in American culture and fetishes. This was accomplished again, with placards, videos and actual fetish gear.

I'm not sure what I expected when I went, but I was not entirely pleased with what I got for the price of admission.

Ultimate burn: My party and I entered the museum 15 minutes after it opened and left about 45 minutes later and the gift shop was still trying to figure out how to arrange the "gift" and as a result didn't offer much for purchase. If they plan to make any more money, they better work on their opening responsibilities.

Ultimate irony: I still ended up buying a MoS magnet for a co-worker

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
