It was just a laugh from start to finish. 4 euros entry fee and got us out of the rain for a couple of hours. Not for children obviously but for adults it gave us the giggles ( nothing to do with the wonderful cakes we'd consumed earlier in a coffee shop Ha Ha)

Most of the displays are falling apart. I wish there was more information rather than just a bunch of pictures. At least it was only 4 euros.

This museum is actually a lot bigger than it appears from the outside. It is also actually very lovely on the inside. Some of the museum is kind of silly, but most of the museum is actually very educational and well done. It also covers a vast history of the topic of sex, and it was actually very interesting to...

You can't go to Amsterdam and not visit this weird place! Gave us a good few laughs and it only costs 4 euros.

A very cheap museum but it is quite small. Worth a visit if you have 30minutes to spare and fancy a bit of a laugh.

I agree with other reviewers that if you're open-minded this is a good place to come for a quick laugh. There's a small animatronic section downstairs, whilst upstairs is mostly very vivid photographs with some sex related artefacts on display. I was amused at the vast range of visitors to the museum, clearly curiosity brings them all in!

We went with an open mind, had a laugh. Some facts were quite interesting, didn't take us long to go round it. Worth a visit! We went Nov 2012.

Only visit this if you're open-minded and in the mood for a giggle :) There are quite a lot of explicit photos and exhibits on show - including some quite eye-opening items... but its all quite tongue in cheek so expect to here lots of laughter :)

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
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.
