I went here with a couple of friends last week. At only 4euros to get in it's good value for a good laugh. It's quite small - you'll probably only spend around half an hour. There are a few interesting things here, a few boring and a few absolutely hilarious things. Worth it if you want a laugh with mates.

We wanted to go just to see ha ha. The exhibition was interesting but a little dated. It was fun but wouldn't be top of our attraction list in Amsterdam.

It's just like any museum but with sex and models in. Quite funny and interesting at the same time. They were doing work to it when we went but they are extending the museum which with be worth it. Recommend this museum and it was only €4 to get in as well.

We dropped in here unplanned some of the moving manikins are comical and made everyone smile. Depending on how much you read will reflect in your time in the museum, it's on levels and some steps are very steep so be aware. For the cover fee of €4 it's worth paying it .

Quite disappointing as I find the museum more amusing than erotic. The mannequins/figures are badly designed. They ain't pretty, and belonged to Halloween instead of a museum of sex theme. There are some funny dildos that is good for a fun pose and humorous picture. Other than that, the museum is full of pictorial write ups of sex history dated... More

only 4 euros for entry, quite a lot of funny and/or interesting things to see! Quite a small museum but good if you're after some fun with friends

We were slightly disappointed with the Sex Museum and dont really know why.. The upside was it was only 4 euros per person entry and took about 30 minutes to look around. If it had cost any more than this I would have been scathing. Inside you will find various exhibits from through the ages. Some good some not so... More

It is probably the cheapest museum in Amsterdam but absolutely over worth. If you are in Amsterdam you can spend half an hour laughing with your friends. The authentic vintage picture collection is a must!

Think it must take quite a bit of alcohol to find this enjoyable. Creepy models, lots of porn. That says it all really.

Went for a visit on a hen do. History of sex museum. Not what we expected. Lots of pictures of people having sex. I wouldn't go out of my way to go but if you have spare time its worth a wander round
