2 min walk from the Central Station.

This museum dedicated to human sexuality is a quirky stop to make in the busiest spot of Amsterdam.

With more than 20 years of existence, the museum displays hundreds of interesting pieces of art, unique objects and rare old photographs, avoiding bluntness of pornography and managing to bring them together in an organized and interesting way.

From the plaster figure of Venus at the entry to the full size wax figures of Mata Hari with her male partners, from Marilyn Monroe, obviously with the air constantly pumped under the actress skirt to the huge plastic phalluses standing erect, you'll have a rich and interesting collection of the objects about the human sexuality.

In each of the museum tiny rooms, different muffled noises from the hidden speakers will accompany your visit. The rooms have different names – Mata Hari, Marquis de Sade, Rudolf Valentino, Oscar Wilde, Marquise de Pompadour and so on. Expect in the Marquis de Sade room a repetitive sound of the steam machine, mixed with woman’s screams of joy coming from a speaker on the ceiling. Pictures through the whole exhibition are allowed.
