with a cheeky sense of humor. From the different muffled sounds of pleasure in each room, to the Marilyn Monroe wax figure with air blowing up her dress, the museum offers a light-hearted look at sex throughout the ages. It also houses a wide variety of erotic artifacts and works of art, including ancient Roman art work depicting sex and 18th century painting of erotic escapades.

The Sex Museum Amsterdam.
It may sound strange but the collection attributes, pictures and what further interesting in the field of SEX, is in this museum. In particular, the collection of old and antique objects is indescribable and definitely worth a visit. So don't hesitate and go inside, for the very low entrance fee you do not.

The Sex Museum was strange, weird and interesting all at the same time. It's also unique in that it feels less like a museum and more like someone's house!

Something different! Was very cheap to enter and I was surprised that it actually was very informational and not what you would expect being a sex museum

I've heard is this place longtime ago, and got a chance to visit, a collection of sex related stuff, pictures, sculptures etc. I felt it's not that interesting as imagine, it still a good place to visit, as there are not too many museums are like this one

A museum of absolute filth but I loved it! It was so outrageous that it was brilliant. Divided into greek sex sculptures, pornography from the 1800's, the history of sex toys and even a cobbled back alley full of brothels this place covers it all. Not for the faint hearted!

Good museum! could have spent more time in there if it wasn't so busy, just seemed too much of a push and shove to get to things. Interesting place though, definately worth a visit!

A museum dedicated to erotica. It is a fairly interesting and amusing museum. Don't let the topic scare you off, the museum isn't seedy or really offensive. It just tries to explore the history of sexuality and eroticism over time. There are several interesting exhibits on the shifting opinions on prostitution and pornography as well as information about Amsterdam's red-light district

The red light bit was ok and some of it is quite funny but it's mainly just old porno pics

Worth a visit - not too expensive too. You probably wont be able to spend more than an hour here as some of the things become a bit samey! But it will definitely be a interesting hour! If your tummy is feeling a bit dodgy too (as mine was when I first went) word of warning for the last X-Rated room!

The museum about a sensitive area of human sexuality is located in the busiest spot of Amsterdam, at the Damrak street, just in front of the Central Station, in the real middle of the traffic madness.

Once you get inside, you realize that the Sex Museum tries to combine their rich collection of artifacts with the elements of the attraction park. Its full name is Sex Museum – “The temple of Venus”. In reality, you will see the plaster figure of Venus at the entry and the full size wax figures of Mata Hari with her male partners and Marilyn Monroe, obviously with the air constantly pumped under the actress skirt. Two huge plastic phalluses standing erect will give you an unusual photo opportunity because you are allowed to photograph throughout the whole exhibition.

By Amsterdam's reputation, I thought that this museum might be more titillating and prurient, but it's actually rather prosaic. It borders on unexciting even.

You need to be open minded to visit this one and be over 18 :-). On a few floors you'll see a collection of pictures, tools, books all relating to sex. The objects are grouped by periods (eg the 18th century ....). Some part of the museum are really interesting - some are just honey for tourists.

Located on the Damrak about 2 minutes walk from Central Station. It's worth popping in for a look, it's not seedy!! More like a proper museum taking you through the history of sex and how we've all changed!
