  • Very informative Museum about prostitution and The Red Light District. Learnt a lot and also managed to have a giggle using props in the rooms set up. Worth a visit.  more »
  • It's an attraction to do to discover the underside of the craft of prostitute. It is well staged, with a few anecdotes, but it remains a curious tourist thing, without historical background or whatever it is.

  • We had already done a walking tour of the red light district so really this place had little new to offer us. Had the tour done in about a half hour.  more »

  • A detailed and fun look at the red light district. It's worth getting the audio guide. The language used about trans workers in the red light district was rather out-of date, but overall it was a good experience.
  • Interesting place and a commentary while you walk around (in different languages). The choice of where they placed the vocal guide activation button is poor though. Been placed at the far end of every new stop point of the tour/walk and need to shuffle thru other peeps to get to it, would in not be better place closer to the entrance area?
  • One of a kind and will fuel some interest. Not sure if I'd visit twice buy not because of the subject matter. Once you've seen it, it loses its lustre.
  • The experience was mind blowing. it's a must visit whenever you visit amsterdam. ticket was for 5 Euros. I will not upload any photos due to the profanity it may include.
  • Don't be shy... hey don't bite. Strike a pose, if you're daring, to see and feel what it's like to be in the front of Red Light Window. hesitant at first, we walked into the museum but found ourselves intrigued. Very informative and well thought of, you have a better understanding of lives of the girls... history and of their story. most interesting was the confession left by fellow travelers... feel free to leave one if it weighs you down!
