Went to the erotisch museum last spring with my boyfriend to kill some time on our last day, I agree with what some reviews have said, in that it is quite small BUT if you like art and culture and want to do something in Amsterdam other than sit in a coffee shop for 10 hours its a good choice....

I visited here with a couple of friends on a trip to Amsterdam last week. I (and they) thought it was very poor - it's advertised as 5 floors of one floor contains the shop & another floor comprises wholly of 'art' to purchase... It's basically empty! The exhibitions on the other floors were quite small, all very randomly put... More

We firgured why not check it out since we were in the area, the name leads you to believe you will be blown away with erotic history lesson and items however you will be dissapointed as it is not what you will expect but okay to pass the time and check off your list of things to see once in...

Neat spot to explore - i've seen it before but the 3rd floor sucks - nothing there. If i recall in the past was 5 euro, now 7... so I think its a bit much but the video on the 2nd floor is hilarious. No order to anything here so ya some folks will not like this. Take it for... More

Honestly not worth it at all. There are four small floors of pictures and one small room with an erotic cartoon. Don't waste your money

Most of the items in the museum were just a random selection of ornaments. Not much flow to it. Good for a few laughs but not really worth the money. A welcome break from the rain though!

It could be a very nice Museum, located in the red light district. Instead it is more a random collection of various erotic art, with no logical and/or historical connection. Chaotic. You can definitely avoid it.

The museum seems to just be a collection of random things vaguely related to sex, in no logical order. There was not really any information about what the exhibits were or why they were there. It seemed as if it was intended to amuse and shock people rather than inform. Only took about 15 minutes to see everything. Some of... More

We found the visit interesting. Some of the exhibits related to sex and porn of bygone era and also exhibits that related to sex and pornography of different cultures. I think that if people visit expecting bawdy raunchiness and to be shocked will be disappointed, it is a museum of sex in the past as well as art and sculpture... More
