Museum of Prostitution

Museum of Prostitution

Red Light Secrets

World’s first museum of prostitution, also known as “Red Light Secrets” opened its doors in December 2013. Right on the famous street of Amsterdam’s Red Light District and in opposite of Cafe The Old Sailor. The Museum of Prostitution fills a gap by showing visitors what Amsterdam window brothels looks like from the inside and answering basic questions about the industry. There are photo opportunities aplenty. For example; it offers two red illuminated windows with two stools behind it allowing visitors to sit in the windows themselves. Get yourself photographed while people on the streets are looking at you.

Experience what it feels like to stand in the windows. Flirt with people on the street. Hear more about legal prostitution. All the Museum of Prostitution.

Amsterdam’s Red Light District

Amsterdam is famously open-minded when it come to prostitution. But since 2008 a bit of a tussle has ensued as the City of Amsterdam embarks on a plan to reduce to number of windows brothels. Also, the local government wanted to have more variety in the area. The city says organized crime has entered the scene and must be stopped; many opponents say the city simply doesn’t like its reputation for sin. The result: many spaces in Amsterdam’s Red Light Districts are being converted to galleries, museums, shops, cafes and whatnot. This Museum of Prostitution is also part this plan, locally known as “project 1012” – which is the zipcode of the area.

There used to be a few real window brothels on this spot but this since 2013 they have been replaced by the Museum of Prostitution. Most sex workers in the Red Light District are not a huge fan of this, because for them this means less possibilities to rent a window. Also, the prices of the window brothels have increased the last few years due to the decrease in windows.
