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

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.

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.
