Really cheap and entertaining as well as informative. Certainly don't have your expectations set too high, but it's worth dropping in - centrally located and easily accessible.

Titillating...perhaps. Offensive...depending on one's values and beliefs. Wide ranging exhibits and photos/pictures. Don't take this place too seriously...its fun and voyeuristic...with a sense of adventure and experimentation.

You really have to go there to smile and laugh. Consider it as a fun attraction rather than a museum. I didn't like the thousands of very similar and boring pornographic pictures. It is not a real museum and although there are some explanations (but they are really not enough), 99 % of people are not there to learn even... More

We went to the museum expecting to learn about the history of sex, how it was viewed in historic cultures, old-fashioned sex toys etc.. Instead, there were just thousands of nude photos and statues with very little information. More an exhibition of sex than a museum.

It was half interesting. There were an few funny things. The pictures were nasty. It was a good giggle but not anything great. Definitely NOT a must see.

Good for a little laugh it'll sure make for a bit of chat round the dinner table. Worth a visit if in the centre but don't go out your way to come here. Maybe take a trip here after sitting in a coffee shop - probably be a lot funnier!!

there's nothing much to see in the museum, mostly posters on walls and some statues and stone or wood carvings. it's really boring. although it only cost EURO4, but actually don't bother to waste your time there.

A really odd experience, but pretty interesting none the less. Great value too at only €4. A quote from my friend: "There's just something not right about looking at porn. With your friends. In a public place." So I could be one to miss if you're a bit of a prude. Loads of 19th & 20th century porn which is... More

I visited here to kill some time whilst in Amsterdam. It was appealing as it was very cheap to get in. We had such a laugh! There were many photos and sculptures which opened your eyes a little! Was rather interesting to see how things have changed over time. We took lots of photos and it certainly gave us a... More
