Important information

Pets are not allowed.
  • Go behind the scenes of the world's oldest profession in a canal house in the middle of old Amsterdam's Red Light District
  • Sit in the window, under real Red Lights, and pose for photos
  • Learn about how the prostitutes are respected and protected and how much money they actually earn

Thousands of people flock to Amsterdam's Red Light District every night to see those ladies in lingerie. But while many gawk under the red lights, few know what really goes on behind those windows. Prepare to get educated.

As you wander through sparkly bedrooms and bathrooms you'll be surprised at the level of comfort and glamor in some of these rooms. You'll discover how the ladies are looked after and made to feel safe as they do their work, which is legal and protected in Amsterdam.

Sit in a window and pose for photos, lounge on a leopard print bedspread, rattle some whips and chains, watch videos featuring some of the prostitutes, and experience how it feels to be in a room with more toys in it than the Playboy Mansion.

You'll come away with a much deeper knowledge of the world's oldest profession. And if you're brave enough, you can add to the collection of confessions on the wall, too. (Some will really shock you! You've been warned).

It was interesting and quirky. The audio guide was beneficial to viewing the exhibit and understanding a little history.

A museum like you’ve never seen before because, how often can you say you visited a brothel (or you were inside Red Lights window)? Also quite educational and interesting, you will pick up a few fun facts for sure. If you’re visiting Amsterdam and you have some spare time, why not checking it out.
