Quite interesting as you could imagine this is an actual brothel, but a sad seedy atmosphere and the commentary was terrible and unnecessary

Very informative, quirky, honest but respectful. Good for those who find the red light district a bit daunting. Reasonable price.

It was raining outside and since we didn't go to any of the museums in the city, that seemed interesting enough to visit. You are given an audio guide where a prostitute had shared her experience of the events. You go through lot of emotions...More

This museum was interesting, but overpriced. It is relatively small, but has some interesting exhibits.

I had heard good things about this place before going but it didn't live up to expectations. Worth a visit if you have time but wouldn't go out of your way to visit.

Entry was 11€ each and for that you received a little booklet and an audio tour. The tour itself was quite short and pretty busy, but very eye opening. You felt a bit rushed through some of it as the hallways were narrow and there...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
