Beate Uhse Erotic Museum
Joachimstaler Straße 4,
10623 Berlin, Germany
The Beate Uhse Erotic Museum (German: Beate Uhse Erotik-Museum) is a sex museum in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin, Germany.
The museum was opened in 1996 near Berlin Zoologischer Garten railway station by Beate Uhse, the early stunt pilot and entrepreneur, who in 1962 started the world's first sex shop. The collection features historic Asian and European erotic art including several lithographies by Heinrich Zille as well as early pornographic films. It claims to be "the world's largest erotic museum".
The museum closed in September 2014, and is searching for new premises.
