“Rip Off!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

A place you'll only visit once and the €7 entry fee is probably a result of this. There were 5 floors with small rooms containing art works, a generic gift shop, sculptures and a little cartoon room showing adult cartoon type videos.

We were only there around 15 minutes, to be honest I'm not sure what we expected but this wasn't it.

“A bit of fun in the Red Light District”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Interesting museum showing erotic pieces through the ages. Really enjoyed the cartoons. Similar to the ones from OTT in the 80's. Probably not the place to visit if you're easily offended.

“A must-see but only once”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

It is a little expensive for what is just an art/sculpture gallery that is a little unorganised. However everyone must see it at least once.

Some of the art work is amazing, It is all very interesting but you must be open minded as prudish people will just turn bright red and want to get out of there.

There is a room that looks at first llike a break room for children, with little mushroom seats it seems very out of place and you soon focus on the cartoons on the wall and realise they are anything but innocent (!)

The cartoons playing on the small TV in that room are even more shocking but all in a comedic fashion, great for a giggle with mates.

Would not go with your parents/kids unless you are a very liberal open family!

Also beware of the twisty staircases, which seem to be a Dutch favourite, they are very steep and narrow and there are 4 floors to go up and get back down.

A great photo oppourtunity area on one of the floors if you dare to sit in the bondage chair or put your head through a cardboard cut out of a slutty girl.

The gift shop is a little dissapointing as most of the items in there are just generic tourist stuff and do not relate to the museum at all. Just a couple of comedy sex type toys you get on blackpool front.

“Rubbish”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

It was just 5 floors of mainly paintings and statues trying to get on the red light district bandwagon.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

This museum cost 7 euro to get in and it's just full of pictures and craft work of male/ female sex parts I wouldn't say it told a story of had any depth to it but set over 5 little rooms with pictures not he wall and hand made craft in glass boxes
