Good fun whilst keeping your clothes on!

We had a great experience at the museum. The rooms were well themed and the narrator was very funny. There were lots of facts and information on the walls between sections and plenty of photo opportunities. The staff were super friendly and very accomodating. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a fun yet informative look into the (sometimes harrowing) lives of sex workers.

Was very interesting, was a lot of people in such a small space so was very hot but other than that was great to see. Would recommend

None. Stupid exhibit. a waste of money. Dirty sidewalks outside of museum. employees were not knowledgeable, only interested in selling souvenirs.

Highly recommend this tour to all who are visiting Amsterdam. Very informative about the history of the trade and its prevalence in the area, and challenges pre conceived ideas.

Very interesting, small museum and will only take about an hour of your time, but worth the hour! The audio guide is a must very interesting stories.
A must to see before strolling Red Light District

Very educative and informative museum! You get an excellent perspective and understanding on this unique profession. Visited museum right before our walking tour in Red Light District, and it was the best decision! It’s a must to see before exploring this area. Highly and strongly recommend!!!
Was too short.
Stacey_G, May 2023
It was average. Short trip thru the museum, not was good as I was hoping. I thought there would be more stories from the girls who work there. But it had some info.
Less than we expected
Nancy_F, Apr 2023
Not what I expected. It's totally self-guided with an ear piece. No one is there but it was crowded inside a tiny structure. Not what any of us expected. Just like a space that was set up specifically for this tour. Took us all of 20 mins.
Would not recommend.
Smelly feat and cheesy...

Smelly feat and cheesy dicks in the words of a prostitute
Actual visit was very poor and not what I expected
So worth it!
Jody_W, Mar 2023
What a great time and experience. So much fun, love that we got to take pictures and try out the stuff. It was not a stuffy atmosphere like some of the other museums.

I enjoyed learning from this tour what the career was and is for an escort. How they operate and how their lives are.

Andrea_K, Oct 2022
Couldn’t find I want my money back no one knows where you are located.
Very crowded and no one can give you directions
Donald_Y, Aug 2022
My guide was prompt and very informative even on tough questions.
Need to change pickup location to just Victoria Hotel
Heather_H, Aug 2022
There wasn't really anything memorable. It took about 15 min to go thru the entire museum. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but seeing a bedroom, run and sex toys was just boring.would have liked to hear stories from the ladies.
Orissa_A, July 2022
Is a cute spot. Very hot, small, lots of walking. Was disappointed because they said it accessible but in fact it wasn’t. Provided a lot of information.
Emma_B, July 2022
It was amazing very helpful staff it was very interesting to know the back ground of the city the canals are just beautiful
Sex Museum Tour
Walter_J, July 2022
Although some interesting things were mentioned, it is not a tour that I would recommend. It brings to focus how crude this type of behave can be.
