At only 4 Euros to get in, it is definitely worth visiting the Sexmuseum! It's got a lot to it, so you get your money's worth. It's interesting, funny, a little creepy with some of the mannequins and quite naughty towards the end, but it's such good fun - a must when you're in Amsterdam and if you don't fancy... More

I was expecting one little room full of sex objects and that's it. But it's actually quite big with lots to see, so great value for money. Was absolutely hilarious but some of the things they have on show are just plain wrong haha. Definitely worth a visit if you're open minded.

Fantastic and funny but also sleazy I've seen enough now to last a life time but a must whilst in Amsterdam and only 4 Euros! But no more for a while!

Great fun in the sex museum and only 4 Euro to get in. Bargain. Takes you on a tour of sex through the ages. Not too shocking or offensive, more comical and Benny Hill style.

This museum is cheap both in terms of pricing and what you can see there. Basically you will see some pics with naked people and some porn sculptures. Since it's only €4 to get in, don't expect something 'wow'

A sex museum was a first for me but was entertaining in most cases as long as you are not too prudish. It is not very large and mostly contains old pornographic images some from as early as the 18th century. It actually gives a bit of an insight into some parts of history that are never talked about and... More

Don't go into this museum if you are prude! The museum is very funny and enlightening. There is lots to see and it is great value for 4 Euros each. I wouldn't suggest taking children in there either. It is very interesting.

Good value for money at 4 Euros. It was funny and informative. Defo sums Amsterdam up. We stumbled across it whilst walking through the streets. It was great.

Like others have noted, the Sexmuseum is part museum, part entertainment, but for 4 euros, we couldn't pass up a visit. It was interesting and fun, and a good way to spend an hour or so on a rainy Sunday evening. For those visitors who are open-minded, most of the exhibits won't be shocking, except, perhaps, for the fetish exhibit,... More

It was an interesting place, but i wasn't very impressed , 90% of the museum consist of pictures. yes, they were pornographic and all, but that s pretty much it, you walk in some chambers and you see some pictures(old and new) with naked people having sex! but the entrance is cheap(4euros) so if you are curious you can take...
