The museum was actually really good, considering the 8E price tag. You not only get to learn a bit about the history of prostitution, but more interestingly you get to step inside what the bedrooms (well, 'workspaces') of the prostitute's look like. There are interactive quizzes, a confession box and the celebrity wall is hilarious. I was pleased to see... More

I thought this attraction was different, but very good! It gave you an insight to the world of a 'prostitute'. It really makes you wonder why women would do this?!

Very informative and interesting. We went on a RLD tour and the guide recommended that we visit this museum and so we did. The place is quite small but plenty to see. If you are in the red light district, you can consider visiting this museum.

My husband and I visited on our recent trip to Amsterdam, and I'm glad we did. Having a bit more knowledge and historical background on the Red Light District was interesting. I wouldn't say this is a must-see attraction in Amsterdam, but if you have a minute and are interested in the district it provides a bit more information in... More

Best money well spent on a place to see we went just down the road to the erotic one that was more money and not good this one you got to hear stories about the girls and see what it was like and see the room that they have to move in worth the visit to see

I really liked the museum as it gave a good insight to the prostitution in the red light district and some very revealing sections which were pretty mad! However i have giving the review 3 star as it was very short. We were in and out in 40 mins. Worth a look if theres a cheap ticket or discount

Interesting, first time I've been. A lot to learn. Not very big alright for value for money. About 5/6 rooms altogether to look around.

We decided to visit this museum, and for 16 Euro, it is okay. Lots of good information on prostitution over the years and some good displays.

I wanted to go to this museum after reading reviews online. It's a good place to visit if you're going to Amsterdam's red light district for touristy purposes. The museum gives insight into the way Amsterdam's prostitutes work, including a day in the life, the kind of workspaces they work in and what it's like behind the red window. A... More
