It's a few floors or sculptors, pictures and mannequins behind glass cases, it's really not worth the time or money to go inside.

Visited the Erotic museum over the weekend, mainly to get out of the rain but also as we had planned to visit a few things around the red light district area. A bargain €7 entry fee and although it's small there are a few floors....More

I wish I have read the reviews before going there. It is really NOT worth € 7, esp.compared to the museum of Prostitution for € 8+1,5 (for the audio and Sex museum for € 5. I just dropped in to have a rest and wait...More

The stairs didn't help with this museum, they are very slanted as well as the whole building in all fairness, it felt like we were falling towards the front of the building. Just like the Sexmuseum, it has a lot of penises everywhere but it...More

At €7, this is such a waste of money. I would suggest to avoid as there's nothing interesting, noting of value - even if it was free, it would be a waste of time. Go to the SexMuseum which is far better, has more on...More

This isn't a museum but a collection of old photos (some quite interesting but few explained) and a random assortment of art for sale, unexplained sex related sculptures and an erotic cartoon playing. Given Amsterdams rich history I was expecting explanation of the items but...More

7 euros. Not as interesting and funny as the sex museum. There are some nice props like a giant penis and a peeing woman in the ceiling.

The experience was very poor. Its more of a gallery than a museum! You see almost nothing with equipment and the history from the "old" days. Way too much of glass statues and paintings. I wouldn't recommend this at all!

This place used to be good to take business relations and let them learn about the erotic aspects of Amsterdam. In the meanwhile the museum is run down and really needs an upgrade, will not take customers here anymore, better go a little further down...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
