Very intersecting museum that gives the history of sex in print ( post cards, cartoons, ect.) as well as various cultural sex items and fetishes.

Quite an attraction that is interesting, fun and very open towards the sex industry. Quite educational and plenty to see here. For the price it is well worth a visit and nothing to be embarrassed about. I was pleasantly surprised with this attraction.

Wasn't fussed on this museum. Very outdated and cheesy! Did not enjoy it at all. Would not recommend!

Was intrigued to see exactly what this place had to offer in terms of the way it displays its sexual content throughout the ages. Definitely not for the prude! Is interesting and very visual if you go in with an open mind. Basically you get from here what you bring to it!

Stepping into the sex museum is like stepping back in time. Both decor and what's on display is a little tired, dated and tacky, but what more could you expect? It was a little giggle and definitely something we'd not seen before! Take it for what it is and you'll enjoy.

Wasnt as interesting as hoped. Had a lot of displays and pictures. Think of it as the history of sex museum. It was only €4 so it is not a waste of money to check it out.

Well.... We visited here and it was very interesting to see. Some of the photos were quite graphic! The bums on the wall that trump when you walk past are funny, especially when you don't expect it! Would deffo recommend going here but I was expecting it to be a tad better then it was

Brilliant visit to this 'attraction' - 20x of us got in easily at night. Cheap to get in with lots to see. Interesting and entertaining content/history. All 20x hens enjoyed it. Worth a visit. You won't forget this easily.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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.
