“Nothing Erotic about it”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

I visited this place in March 2014. It attracts you from outside when u see a statue of a lady on a bike enjoying with the bike seat. It seems funny and makes you have a good laugh. You pay the entrance fee of 7 euro thinking that they gonna have a lot of such stuff inside. But to your surprise, right from the first floor, from where the museum starts, you realise that the lady statue you saw from outside is and was the only attraction at that place and you wasted 7 bucks for finding nothing exciting in all the 4 floors of the museum. Inside the museum you will find some collection of small nude statues and paintings here and there. Some are historic and some are modern collection. Place is very small. On the 2nd floor they have some c rated sex cartoons running on a tv set but again nothing funny or erotic about it. I'll not recommend it to anyone. Better utilise the same time elsewhere or on the street and save on your euros. You will need them elsewhere.

“Not as good as Sex Museum.”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Not too expensive and worth going just for the experience but lacks in interesting exhibits and items. The most interesting were some drawings by John Lennon which was quite cool but other than that it's just bits and pieces. The decor is pretty poor as well and it isn't as well presented as the Sex Museum which is also near by.
That being said it wasn't expensive and if returning with friends who hadn't been I would go again.

“Good little museum ”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Spent most of our time in the video room which was hilarious I would advise you to go see. Chance of a photo op and quite a few things to see. There was wax work to look at through the windows. It is a bit overpriced for what it is. But most definitely worth a visit.

“Erm.... Not as expected”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We went in expecting to be a little shocked and a little awed but the experience.
It was far tamer than expected for what is essentially Amsterdam's Sex Museum.
It was arty, some historic pieces, statues etc. some naked pics. It was a sex museum, but not quite as Amsterdam as it suggested!
I'd never suggest to anyone not to go somewhere, but if you only have a mild interest, perhaps your money to be spent better elsewhere.

“Interesting but maybe overpriced”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We, like other people went in here thinking it was the Sex Museum, more "arty" than anything else really, although getting more graphic as you get higher up the building. A bit of a random selection of things in here, and its not very big so can be quite cramped.

Possibly over priced, but if you were going to read every single article in there it might work out better value for money.
