it is a very small place , very limited exhibits, it is not a museum , not worth the money we visited this place 6/20/18. You walked thru narrow nasty ally and stairs with almost no exhibit. All they got is some video and fun staff. We walked through it in 10 minutes. Besides, the place looked messy and disorganized , it is just a make shift place. Not worth the money at all.

Found the Redlight Museum a waste of time. I was expecting more as the tour was basically just a walk through and the information was not very good. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

The exposition of the museum look like convincing the visitor to understand why the girls are choosing this profession. We expected to see a different exposition.

This was interesting, worth doing if you are curious about this profession. The 10 we paid here was the same price at the door except you got the audio tour at the door. That might be worth it

The museum was really compact. It did, however, gave interesting view points of the life in red light district. Things like regulations, cost of renting a window, practices, etc. I spent roughly 30 minutes there, so it may feel like the content falls short of the 9 USD entrance ticket. Also,the line is not long so skip-the-line ticket really doesn't mean much. Though to be fair to viator, it will cost just about as much if you show up and purchase the ticket from the museum itself.

Educational and very interesting insight into the oldest profession! I found the individual stories particularly enlightening and quite emotional. The experience of sitting in the window, even though fully dressed, was quite overwhelming. You get to see various room settings and read number of facts about prostitution in Netherlands. I definitelly recommend visiting this museum if you are keen on getting new perspective on prostitution! Also make sure you try the photobooth at the end to have some cool memory of the visit!
