This museum was very intriguing and is in the heart of the red light district in amsterdam. They had audio guides to use as you walk through and you follow the story of a russian sex worker throughout the tour. The space is small and can get a bit crowded at times but the staff are friendly and I would definetly visit again in the future. It was a educational and subtle way to bring awareness to the problems facing sex workers and the dangers they encounter in their work.

A very immersive museum, in a very mysterious universe. The audio guide, offered in French, allows you to understand what is around you. The wealth of information, interspersed with anecdotes is a great mix not to be bored. The quality of this museum is to be complete without being too long. It is done in 45min and gives you time to visit the red light district with the necessary knowledge.

A very interesting and eye-opening experience, as it gives you an idea on what life in the Red Light district means. Interesting to hear facts and legalities attached to the windows, and in addition this will probably changes your point of view towards sexworkers. It was quite short (around 35/40 min) but fun! Definitely worth the visit.
