Museum Of Erotics And Mythology - Review
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
The concept seemed intriguing and the allure of having to ring a bell to gain entry was exciting, but unfortunately this is where the fun stopped. To call this place a "museum" is misleading - it is more of a "small personal collection of artifacts in someone's house." Very little information given on any of the artifacts - was quite often just a country and a date. This gives no information on the history of the piece, nor the artist. Also disappointing to see so much ivory on display. I understand these are historical pieces when carving ivory was generally accepted, however I would not have visited this place had I known. Save your money and visit one of the other dozens of museums in Brussels.
A small museum which is rather a private collection of erotic artifacts (statues, antique sex toys etc). Sure it cannot compete with the sex museums of Amsterdam, but can be amusing if you have nothing to do. Entry fee is 10 eur per person, which we've found somewhat pricey for what you get.
Very cool place, nice lady explaining, helpful and friendly. Just i wished we could take some pictures.
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.
The place is very small and was way too crowded to enjoy the art. Still an interesting place.
