We were passing by and saw this museum... there are many different things to see and make you think how the sex has been involved in everything... It is a funny place

Had high hopes for the Sex museam, as Amsterdam is a town so closely linked to sex! Spent a good 45 minutes in the sex museam and had a few giggles. Relatively interesting, although as a gay man i feel the homosexual section was seriously lacking and could have done with more prominence. Overall a decent, reasonably priced attraction worth...

Eh . . . Amsterdam is a strange town, and this museum . . . well, you can't go to Amsterdam and not pass through the Red Light district. If you are fundamental, prudish, or well . . . just a stick in the mud I would presume you didn't go to Amsterdam anyway. For four Euro, it's worth it... More

My husband and I spent an interesting hour looking around this museum, who knew quite how naughty the Victorians were?! If you are offended by porn then I definitely wouldn't recommend you visit but for those with an open mind there are many interesting exhibits dating right back to the mid 1800's, from objects d'art to photographs, little tableaux and...

Spotted this little place on the way from the station to my hotel & decided to pop back for a look. Cheap to get in & actually quite an informative museum. Some of the pictures are not for the faint hearted, so be warned!!

This isn't a bad little place to visit to kill a couple of hours, but don't expect it to fill a full day! Still, at just four euros, you can't complain - well worth a visit

Went to this museum when the rain came down as it was close and indoors. Soooo very glad we did, from the start the museum is very well organised. Lots of information and pictures of sexual acts/preferences Throughout the years. Lots of stairs to contend with that can be steep at times so beware!!! You are allowed to take pictures... More

this was the first museum I went to in Amsterdam as its very close to central station, and I had a fun time, its only 4 euros to get in, and its quite explicit what you see but in a fun and interesting way. I walked out of this museum smiling, giggling and satisfied.

If you go to Los Angles, you go to Disney. If you go to Las Vegas, you go to a casino. If you go to Amsterdam, what do you expect. Sex ! This museum is situated amongst some small seedy hotels, kebab shops and massage parlours. Then again, what would you expect. You don't need to get a tram or... More
