Good to see local history and its just a great hour to amuse yourself with. This is fun for over 18's -70 all ages are curious to see what is inside. I've been so many times and each occasion is completely different. Must do whilst in Amsterdam

This museum is essentially a series of naughty photos with some interesting models and toys too! It was good for a laugh and at only four euros can't complain......

I was expecting this to be a light hearted exhibit, maybe even funny. Nope, just a load of dirty pictures that are fading in the sunlight that get more and more weird as it goes on. Enough to make you celibate.

It is worth to go once in a life time, so if you have seen other one is a waste of time. Usual sex museum with photos instruments and all related to sex.

The 4 euro entry are well spent, museum itself preety average. The major exhibition of pornographic photography from the period from 1890 to today allow a nice view to the fact that a once proven "game" has not changed for many years. And that may have been such a prude to our grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. Place to go that I... More

Located 5 mn walk from the red light windows area. If you have been to a sex museum in the past, this will not be very different. Nice puppets, a few perversions, little history, some funny statues, some are strange choices for a sex museum. All in a maze of rooms, stairs and levels, for a few euros. Nothing like... More

Pretty average museum with some interesting things in there. A huge focus on old photographs. It's acceptable but you certainly wouldn't go back.

This museum was very strange. We went there just for laughs, and that is about all it is good for. There are weird things that pop out at you and it is just generally a really weird place.

Visited here during our first visit to Amsterdam for a friend's birthday. As the city is known for its open attitude towards, amongst other things, sex, we felt we should pay the museum a visit. It was well worth the €4. Could not stop laughing from start to finish. A great mixture of exhibits which were both amusing and educational.... More

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.
