We spotted this place as we were heading back to our Coach with a bit of time to spare so thought for 4 Euro's each it would be a laugh. We paid and went in and were quite surprised at the level of detail in their, but then again it is in Amsterdam so we shouldn't really have been that... More

Fun museum to have a walk around. Learning about sex through the ages. Inexpensive and worth a half hour visit to

What can I say , this was so funny such good value for money.....maybe not if your of a sensitive disposition! We went to the erotic museum after this and were very disappointed. If you have to pick then this is a good way to spend 30 mins

Funny displays just right after the entrance, but then only old photographs of naked women, and old Chinese teopots with some porn paintings on it. Used the coin machine to watch the movie, a very short one, and old.. It's ok to visit if you have nothing else to do, or you really want to say to your friends that... More

I felt it was abit of a waste although affordable. After the initial shock of wow its a sex museum it gets very dull very quick. For some it might be cheeky and fun but wasn't as fun as I thought it would be.

We decided that we would give the Sex museum a visit whilst in Amsterdam.. For €4 you can really go wrong! There are a lot of erotic pictures every where ad you would expect so its probably not for the prude!!

It's hard not to laugh in this place from the moment you walk in the door. Very cheap entry and if you have a slightly twisted sense of humour you will have a great time. It's a great way to kill an hour and you will probably be pleasantly surprised!

Well, we were passing this place & thought we'd go in for a look. It consists of A LOT of photographs of pornographic images for the last 200 years as well as seats that look like penises & odd bits and ends...!Its a laugh, nothing major but its a bit of craic wandering around for half an hour. I think... More

I am by no means prudish but I did feel my cheeks reddening a few times in here. It is extremely in your face but of course if you have paid your 4 euro entrance fee you will have an idea of what you are in for. As much as it was embarassing in places and funny in others it... More
