This is right near the station and along a main road. It costs €4 to get in. There's lots of art and photographs, plus a few dummies for a good laugh. We had a very entertaining time.

Quite a large museum for the entry fee and a real bargain for all they have in there. It's fun and quirky and also, arguably packed full of real art and certainly a good representation of sex and pornography from around the globe and through the ages aswell as a lot of memorabilia for the red light district and attractions...

Went here with the hubby and had a giggle, worth a look around and it doesn't take long, approx 30 mins. There's quite a few narrow steep staircases not capable for disabled access.

Don't waste €4 on this museum. It was rubbish. Not even worth €4. There were a few pictures on the walls & that's about it.

At only € 4 entry it is a must see! A lot of photographic and arty objects. Some crude plastic ( scary dummies ) displaying sex acts... But very entertaining. I guess could be educational and enlightening for some ...

Does it's best at being factual and informative. If anything it is interesting to see how the sex industry has evolved from the late 1800's. You will likely stumble past it en route to somewhere else. If you have an hour to kill, pop in. Not many places in Amsterdam you can pass an hour and spend 4euros. If you... More

Ticket is not expensive, but not so much to see there. The best time to get in is night time if you just passing it by the way to the next bar.

This was okay. The fact that it was only €4 to enter made it somewhat worthwhile, but I wouldn't have paid any more. It was a rainy day and myself and my boyfriend were passing so we said we'd pop in. It's a bit boring and repetitive, just a lot of nudes (really weird ones) on the walls and a... More

I found this museum very funny with quite a lot to see over the space of three floors, however there seemed to be quite a lot of construction work taking place which meant around 3 features of the museum were closed. The entrance fee was only four euros which I found very cheap and it was worth it for a... More
