At only €4 entry I thought this was a steal. Very graphic pornographic images at the upper levels of the museum that show what folks have been upto for years. Silly movibg displays at the entrance that had me giggling from the start. Not many sex museums around the world but this was a good laugh and very Amsterdam!!!!

As you can`t find a sex museum very often around the world this is definitely something you should see at least once. Is has a few very well made sculptures describing the genitals, sex toys and loads of information's about how to.... :)

It's not sexy at all to be honest. I spent the whole time in here in fits of laughter. How sexiness has changed over the centuries is baffling. Don't go if you're a prude..... Lots of phallic shapes and toys to laugh at. Cheap couple of hours. Worth a visit

A hilarious 40 minutes of an adventure in a seventies sexland! Some very old parts to this museum which really add to the experience and novelty. But yet needs an area for the modern era of sex.

Worth a look around for 4 euros, a few interesting bits but overall not as dirty as I expected. Funny picture opportunities.

Wouldn't say it was a 'must-see', but it was fun and reasonably priced, so worth a visit if you're in the centre and have an hour to kill; you will definitely have a laugh, although be prepared to see a few images that you probably wish you had not!

I went here with 3 of my friends for one of their birthday's - we are all girls and we found it hilarious. A must see venue if you go to Amsterdam and if you are the shy, retiring type, be ready to have your eyes opened!! :)

Only went cause you have to go whilst in Amsterdam but it's well worth it. It's dead cheap and a proper laugh. There's loads of interesting stuff in there and you do learn a bit too! Haha

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
