Red Light Secrets Tours

Amsterdam is known for its wide streets, classic museums and colorful canals. It is also known for its coffeehouse culture and open-minded approach to both cannabis and prostitution. Visitors flock to see the city’s Red Light District, where prostitution is legal and very much out in the open. Red Light Secrets, located in the heart of the area, is the world’s only museum dedicated to the risque profession—offering an eye-opening look at its history in Amsterdam.

Housed in a traditional 17th-century canal house, the small museum aims to educate curious visitors without entering a brothel. Travelers can examine full-scale replicas of luxury brothel suites and wardrobe displays, while also getting the chance to listen to interviews with prostitutes about their daily lives and step into a florescent, red-lit window. The building itself was once home to an operating brothel, facilitating an authentic experience.

Practical Info

The museum is open daily from 11 am to midnight. Located at the heart of the Red Light District in the city center, it can be found at Oudezijds Achterburgwal 60 and costs 10 euro for admission. It is a five minute walk from the central train station.
