Erotic Museum, Amsterdam
An old warehouse in the middle of Red Light District, with an always-lit neon above the entry, which says - Erotic Museum. Much higher on the façade of the 17th century canal house, you may notice an old stone plate with a proud sentence: - God is mijn Burgh (God is my Castle), a typical Amsterdam contrast - you might say.
Inside, a shop with erotica souvenirs and on the three floors up - an exhibit, more about the Red Light District itself, than about eroticism. A room of the Red Light District prostitute with the wax figure of the working girl inside and a model of the cashier of the famous Casa Rosso Live Show Theater. Furthermore a collection of the old erotic photographs, an interesting series of John Lennon’s lithographs and a compact collection of erotic art. In a separate room with walls painted like in a kindergarten, a projection of the animated “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” but in a version, which could never be shown in any of the Disney attraction parks, next to a vending machine selling the most unusual condoms you may imagine.
In the middle of the Red light District, an air-conditioned exhibition about the sensation of this unusual area of town. If you prefer not to see the real Red Light District establishments, but you still would like to see how they look like – this exhibition has been made for you. Additionally, here you may freely take pictures, while we warn you against photographing in the streets outside. Erotic museum pictures.

Admission: € 5,-.
