It looks quite small from the outside but covers over 3 floors. There are animations as well as history of many types of sex over the ages (and it goes back over 1,000 years). Spent about 1 hour for 4 Euros. Toilets also inside - these are worth using (or jut looking at).

Probably the best museum of this type, quite tasteful with loads of extreme photo opportunities. Not suitable for young children.

As another reviewer has said the museum is currently closed for re-construction work so check first otherwise you may have a long walk up Damrak. But this is worth the few euros entrance fee to see the exhibits.

I first visited this museum 21 years ago so was interested to go back. I can honestly say that they have refurbished the museum but the artefacts are exactly the same! It was a joy to be able to photograph myself sitting on the large penis shaped seat like those years had never passed! To be fair, this museum entrance... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the museum and when we got there, it was all boarded up outside with a big sign saying that they had temporarily closed for reconstruction. This wasn't advertised on their website and resulted in a wasted journey for us, not to mention we were disappointed as we really wanted to see the museum.... More

Spanning about 5 floors, history of sex through the ages, it's worth a look just because you are in Amsterdam and in the red light district.

A not bad waste of few Euros and an afternoon hour or so! New experience for us as it is the first sex museum we visit. Interesting in general with a bit of repetition and you get a bit bored by the end of it. Worth trying however, especially if you schedule it after a good coffee shop!!!

This museum does not have that many things to offer but I can say it is pretty interesting to see the old pictures. It is cheap and open until night, so why not pop by, even just for curiosity :).

Being cheeky, my girlfriend and I decided to visit this museum as it was rather cheap. Many artifacts that are weird. There are pictures that are explicit. There are mannequins too, some are interactive ones. One particular ugly male mannequin (on the first floor near the entrance) comes out of hiding, says something and flashes his junk. A little creepy.... More
