“Hilarious & Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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 interesting, and different sex toys and artefacts. I personally just saw the funny side of it and didn't take anything too seriously. Free WiFi throughout although it isn't that great.

“A good laugh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

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 giggle for the rest of the day. Worth a go for so little money!

“Really interesting and shocking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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!!

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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

“Good for a laugh!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

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 and for such a small price, definitely worth a visit while you are there. Just don't take it too seriously and be open minded!
