Stopped in here with some time to kill. Some interesting facts of you have a read on the info on display. All in all mildly entertaining.

Not the most interesting museum in Amsterdam but a good way to spend an hour. A number of interesting and funny things to see as well as some rather disturbing ones at the end!

Although outside it says "See sex from Roman times till today" it's not really organized in any chronological order or categories. Also no arrows to show you the direction to go, just look around in whatever order you please. Wouldn't be one of the top places I'd go to, but if you just arrived in Amsterdam for the first time,...

This museum was pretty much average.. The museum lacked any flow to what they are displaying. It just seemed it was a bunch of nude photographs and paintings. The only thing interesting was their dark setting of the red light district of amsterdam in the early 18th century.. But for just 4 euro entry, you can give this place a... More

Its a good time killer for only 4 euro; but its a definite tourist trap and will be full of people who are there to see this place as more of a freak show.

Well certainly not the place for a prude! This place is a fantastic visit, it is well presented with humour and it certainly educates. There were some informative sections and it certainly kept us interested. Not a huge place and not overly expensive to get in.

This is the right place for you if you're not boring and can have a laugh or two without feeling uncomfortable. For €3 or something its definitely worth seeing, its not the biggest of places but its an experience.

For a start it only costs €4 for 1 hours entry. This states almost immediately that theres not much to it.... its was a little educational, funny and some of the images were definitely an experience. I think its worthy of its price and why not kill a bit of time if your around the area

not just sleaze and cheese but some funny and interesting photos and artefacts to be seen for a small 4 €! Entertaining and one worth visiting. Very close to the central station.

The Sex Museum is ideally placed on Damrak about 50 yards from Centraal Station and is great for killing time between checking out of your hotel and having to catch your train to Schiphol. At only €4 too, it offers great value for money. Despite lacking a bit of structure, the exhibits which are mostly photographs, give a representation of... More
