It was fun. There are lots of humourous bits to it. There were some boring old photos of what erotica was but put it on your bucket list. It is funny.

I enjoyed the Sex Museum. I think if you are going to visit Amsterdam then you might as well visit something a bit sleazy. The sex museum is easy enough to find. It’s near central station and on the main road beside a number of restaurants. I'm not sure if this is meant to be ironic or not as I'm... More

Pretty much does what is says on the tin. A collection of mostly photographs and wierd n wonderful artifacts depicting sex through the ages both around the world and in Amsterdam especially. The 'models/mannequins' are pretty basic and the 'action models' will make you laugh rather than wonder at. they're no Madame Tussuades!. Worth a visit, it doesn't cost much... More

I read all the reviews about sex museum before I actually go there. It wasnt erotical and I expected a great laugh as many reviewers feel when they visit this museum. As for me, a bit different, yes it may be one experience u can get only in Asmterdam, but, the S & M section was a big turnoff. Sorry... More

Really, that's all I can say lol! I mean it was really interesting to read about Amsterdams sex history and look at exhibits but after a while I just felt like I was staring at vintage porn. It is a must do for anyone visiting the city, not a maybe, a MUST. Think of it in terms of being "down"... More

If we expected a few less penises it wouldn't be the sex museum would it. Worth a look for the money you pay to get in and will keep you entertained for a hour or so. The histroy of porn.

One of the must when in Amsterdam. Go in with an open mind as even as an ex serviceman i was a bit surprised at some of the exhibits. Found quite a wide range of ages while visiting the attraction most where having a giggle as we were. We thought it was good value for the experience and the time... More

This attraction was only 4 euros to get into and basically you get what you pay for! It was never going to be brilliant for that price, it's just more of a laugh. There are some funny sights inside and surprisingly some parts were interesting. All in all for 4 euros you might aswell have a look inside! There is... More

We went here as we were on a several hour stopover and said that we would see something that Amsterdam is apparently famous for.. Boring and at times just uncomfortable, we went in a big group of girls and none of us are prudes but n-oone really enjoyed it.. Not really worth the admission.
