Sex Museum Amsterdam

When you mention Amsterdam, there’s a few things that spring to mind. Depending on who you ask (maybe I just have friends with one track minds?) the Sex Museum Amsterdam is high on that list. Hell, even my Mum kept asking me if I was going to go. The girls were up for it, and it’s kind of an Amsterdam thing-so we went.

Located a short walk from Centraal Station, on Damrak, the museum is easy to get to no matter where you’re coming from. Opening hours are 9:30 am to 11:30 pm and entry is fairly cheap at 5 Euros. There are no under 16s allowed, so no risk of the children seeing things they shouldn’t be seeing (believe me, there’s so many things children shouldn’t be seeing in there!)

It’s over a few floors, with steep stairs, which distracted me slightly. The giant penises are on the third (I think!) floor, and I’d been challenged by my team leader to get a photo with them. I also felt the need to take silly photos under the red light district sign, and with a bowl made from brass cocks. FFS Laura! There’s definitely lots of opportunities for photographs at the Sex Museum Amsterdam.

If you’re expecting something modern, full of Ann Summers/Fifty Shades kind of stuff, you’ll be disappointed. The museum is full of 70s, dodgy porn style exhibits. As you walk in there’s a man in a flasher mac-stand too close and he’ll flash you (I tried not to laugh. I failed) Later exhibits show women in windows, where you can watch what they’re doing, lots of soft porn photoshoot style pictures, a model of Marilyn Monroe (weirdly!) and I’ll let you discover the rest for yourself!

Being completely honest, after spending an hour or two in the museum I was done, and I don’t feel the need to go again. But would I suggest you go, if you’ve never been? Well, it’s only 5 euros, it’s pretty central, and it IS a big Amsterdam sterotype. I wouldn’t pay much more than 5 euros though, but it’s good for a laugh.

Have you been to the sex museum? Would you?

    I’m going to Amsterdam in the summer and I can’t wait to go to the sex museum! Glad it’s only 5 euros too 🙂

    There were so many weird and wacky things in that museum – and going to it with a massive hangover on New Years Day at 9pm was a mistake, we were pretty grossed out by a lot of it! x

    This sounds like an interesting place to visit to say the least, I have not bern to one before.

    I really want to go to Amsterdam and I can imagine me giggling like a school girl in there. The giant penis did make me laugh! x

    I’ve not been to the sex museum or Amsterdam before. I’d love to go, it looks a good laugh and it’s the kind of place you have to go once isn’t it. It’s so cheap too!
