A lot of tourists visit Amsterdam and are fascinated with the lives and livelihoods of prostitutes who have worked the Red Light District for years. The Museum of Prostitution – Red Light Secrets is a “must visit” for these curious minds!
Red Light Secrets is the world’s first and only museum of prostitution. It is located at the very centre of the famous Red Light District in Amsterdam and offers a unique peek into the ins and outs of the world’s oldest profession. This museum is housed in a historical 17th-century canal house and is one of Amsterdam’s top attractions. A very educational museum and the perfect place to discover the hidden world behind the industry, learn about the trade from first-hand accounts by the working girls themselves and enjoy a behind-the-scenes look into this fascinating topic.
Red Light Secrets is a former brothel in a 17th-century monumental canal house. Ideally located in the centre of the Red Light District. Around the corner of the Old Church, the oldest building in Amsterdam (ca. 1213).
The museum is home to a lot of information on the good and the bad sides of the business. A short film introduces tourists to the other aspects of the Red Light District, which is much more than just a neighbourhood for paid sex. There are also different rooms for different types of experiences. A confessional wall where tourists can write their deepest sex secrets, some of which make the confessional wall, with no names of course. There is also a front room where you can sit in the window and pretend to be a working girl.
