A special exhibition was opened in April 2010 in the Pedestrian Street of Keszthely.

The material of the museum was made in 3 weeks that introduces the Renaissance erotic literature in a very natural way. Now the illustrations made to the writings step out from the pages of books like wax figures.

The puppets were made by the students of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts who were models of the project as wells. Among these figures there are black-white pictures, cuttings, embossments, Indian ornaments and mini ceramic statues that flush the naturalism.

We can meet the works of the famous writers and poets of the French Renaissance like Voltaire and Rousseau. A novel of Boccaccio springs into existence: we can read a part from the work Decameron and see how the persons as well as the story become reality.

We can observe the erotic culture of the far Eastern India, the Kal Church, decorative ornaments, a wax figure love scene and some pages of the Kama Sutra, too.
