Very well located and cheap. Maybe a good way to spend an hour if it's raining, but dont expect much. The place is mostly a random collection of photos and "devices".

Everyone who ever goes to Amsterdam will tell you to go here for the experience! It is quite bazaar but quite entertaining. Very easy to get to from central station via walking. It is quite small and cramped and it does get very busy so can be quite hard to get around.

I'm not sure what I was expecting actually, but it was definitely more than what this has to offer. The tour is quite short, and actually really weird at some parts. Not sure I'd recommend this, unless you really have some spare time you have nothing to fill it with.

This should really be called Pornmuseum, as I felt like I didn't learn much about sex during my visit. It's very heavily image based with a few creepy mannequins thrown in and while a variety of sexual ages are explored, ranging from ancient to modern times, the vast majority of the content here are sexual images with very little information...

The Sexmuseum is worth a visit as it is only 4 euros per person to get in. Some of the exhibitions were meant to be laughed at, there are very graphic images in some sections, but it was interesting enough. It is set over several floors with stairs. Probably wouldn't go back as I think we saw all there was... More

For the 4 euro a ticket entry this museum is a brilliant way of spending an hour or two! Perfect just for the sheer comedy of the moving models and walk through areas and we were laughing from the first moment we walked in and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the sex museum. We were worried it would be seedy,... More

As a group of three people who aren't exactly shy, I would still suggest a quick drink beforehand just to make this little trip even funnier! For the price it's well worth it! It's a self guided tour of sex throughout the ages. Overall it's one of those things that you should experience once!!

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.
