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

This was a brilliant museum! I wasn't expecting so much due to the small fee, but we were there for ages looking at hundreds of photos from the ages, sculptures, artwork and so much more. It was super informative and very explicit (don't go if you're prudish.....or with your parents) but it wasn't seedy at all. A must!!

It was a very interesting place to visit. It seemed a little run down and in need of modernizing and updating.

For 4 euros, its a bargain! You have to go in knowing what you are going to see is pretty graphic as I overheard some tourists tutting at some of the items - not sure what they were expecting... It provides a good giggle and you do come away having learnt a few things! It is certainly an eye opener... More

We had time to kill and thought we might learn something ( we are only 60)! This exhibition is well laid out and easy to walk around . So many old photographs well displayed by the year they were taken and in such good repair. Nothing seems to have changed much over the years it was just more risqué back... More

1st of all bargain to go in, only 4 euros. It's quite fascinating some of the exhibits they have, vibrators years old. It's an eye opener how people's attitudes towards sex has changed over the years.

Me and my partner stumbled upon the sex museum as we were strolling around waiting to go to the Anne frank museum! We knew we had time to waste but it wasn't wasted here!!! It has to be the most funniest educational (in a word) experience ever! You NEED to go here! I downloaded an app about Amsterdam before I... More
