World Erotic Art Museum

The World Erotic Art Museum is absolutely worth it. Probably don't take your grandmother, or your mother for that matter. Maybe just don't take anyone who is going to be rendered speechless by a wall of vulvas. Everything was neatly labeled and organized, from the Swarovski crystal-encrusted phallus (on a rotating pedestal for proper admiration and optimal sparkle), to the carved pear featuring genitals and insects, to the corncob-turned-penis framed sketch. The entire museum is impressive, but the true star of the show is an eight-foot-high golden penis. If you need that photo op (and who doesn't?), you can sit on the base like it's a giant, anatomically correct, erect throne.

World Erotic Art Museum

WEAM is much larger than you'd think and well worth the $15 admission. The permanent collection is organized by origin, time period, and/or subject matter. There is a room of Asian art, a large selection of fertility talismans, and contemporary art. There are HR Geiger prints, some Picassos, and a Dali. There is Betty Page and Tom of Finland. All in all, allow at least an hour and a half. [Duncan, 04/14/2017]
