Dr. Guy Martens began his collection of erotic art and artefacts when he was 17 years old, and in 2012, he had collected enough to open a museum devoted to the subject. Exploring the human fascination of sexuality from Antiquity to modern times, the exhibits here are as diverse as they are provocative. Paintings, sculptures, prints, ivories, engravings, carvings - the museum has them all. The oldest item dates as far back as 4500 BC! There are about 800 items in total. It’s a sheer celebration of the culture of sex, beauty, and pleasure.

Museum Of Erotics And Mythology, Brussels Reviews - Write a Review
Lovely curated, more than 600 pieces from a private collection. If you are interested in the portrayal of erotics over the past centuries this is definitely worth going. Very nice curators and guides, that help you out with anything you would like to know.
Somewhat comprehensive museum with an impressive personal collection of over 600 pieces of art, in a small house which the owner, Dr Guy Martens, has bought for the very purpose of hosting his collection as a museum. An establishment of fine art for connoisseurs of history of art, which makes appear the Amsterdam museum of eroticism almost as a trivial sex shop.
Awesome small museum! Spend some time looking at the art otherwise you will think it didn't worth the money, but it does!
EUR10 per person for a museum of this size is of course a lot, but it is totally worth paying to see the decent collection of its type worldwide over the centuries.
You have to ring a doorbell to get in, so it seems a bit like entering someone's house. This is the private collection which one man has accrued over his lifetime. We were guided around by a lovely and very informative woman who explained the history of each of the pieces and then left us to browse. A very unique and unusual experience!
