Although some interesting things were mentioned, it is not a tour that I would recommend. It brings to focus how crude this type of behave can be.

NOTHING BURGER

This “experience” was awful. We were looking forward to real information but that was not the case. Just a very dirty (with dirt) place that offered nothing but trite bits from recorded voices and a “film” clip of people talking inaudibly. Extremely disappointing.

Very interesting and informative. The audio guide provided was both interesting and quite entertaining. All in a very good presentation. Takes roughly 4( mins to complete the trip or a little longer if busy.

Interesting and informative and the booklet we received was a plus. Since in a lot of ways, legal prostitution is what Amsterdam is known for, I would recommend to anyone coming for a visit

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.
