  • 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?
  • 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!
  • Not as what we expected to see, however we had fun visiting this place. It was like walkking down history and understanding why sex was indeed a much needed trade back in those days. One can still glimpse into the antics. Venture out seafood around this area if you're hungry walking around
  • Fairly small museum that highlights the key points about the history and current state of prostitution in Amsterdam. There's a fair amount of useless things there, but a couple of the items were worth the price of admission. It only takes about an hour, and the "optional" audio tour was helpful. Despite only 3/5 stars, I still consider it worth doing while in Amsterdam (and day or night makes no real difference).
  • Pretty good and cheap but should be more informative about history of prostitution. Buy cheaper tickets at a tourist shop
