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.

I have the feeling that this museum would be more enjoyable when there is no crowd. It is VERY small so having more than a couple of people walking through at a time makes it even worse. I didn't even get to experience all of the exhibits because there were just too many people. It wasn't anything like I expected. You pretty much walk through a few rooms and use the headset to listen to some stories. Its okay but certainly not worth 14 euros (maybe 10 at the most).

Very interesting museum with some really funny stories on the audio guide. It was lighthearted and fun, but also serious when it needed to be. We enjoyed it, the only thing that was missing was a bit more information on the history of the industry and the area.

One of the surprising place in my life to visit. Interesting story and amazing world inside. A fascinating and great world of the red light representing sex and prostitution.

Really overpriced for what it is, the history that is shared in there is really minimal and I felt that it was more taking the piss out of workers and the profession than sharing there experiences. The case of Annie murder was barely a paragraph. The museum was also jam packed so you were unable to fully take in the displays and could not move at all. They should stagger entries to avoid this. Can find more info on Google. Completely disappointed.

The museum is simply to small.. You are seeing just few rooms and can listed audio.. basically you can see all in 10-15 minutes and there is nothing special to be seen. Not worth the money paid.. better take a walking tour during the day in the red district area...

It was an interesting insight to the world of prostitution which was good, however the rooms was far too cramped with all the other tourists.

Took my boyfriend here on our last day, we both enjoyed it even though I had been before!

Woman at the front was very lovely, walk around didn’t take long either. Wasn’t too bothered by price of the ticket as it’s something you must do when visiting Amsterdam!

This was my favourite attraction in Amsterdam, it was so informative & eye opening to the reality of prostitution in Amsterdam. We experienced a power cut whilst walking through, the staff were super hospitable & issued us a ticket to re-visit later on when the power was back up. The best bit was the confessions wall at the end of the tour.

We visited this and was unsure about going beforehand.

The museum was an old brothel and it was an interesting visit. We paid the extra 1.50 euros for the story version - not sure what it would have been like without it but I learnt a lot about the culture of prostitution in Amsterdam and it definitely made visiting the red light district at night more interesting as we understood the culture.

Would recommend a visit!

We were walking past here and decided to go in and see what it was all about. It basically takes you around rooms and examples of rooms used by the ladies in the windows, so to speak. There are little paragraphs all over the place and they literally answer all the questions that you didn't know who to ask! It was €8 and you spend less than an hour in there. I recommend it.
