Amsterdam Red Light Secrets & 1 hour Canal Cruise

Red Light Secrets is definitely a must-see, one-of-a-kind attraction. Combine a visit to this quirky museum which offers exhibits on the history of Amsterdam's sex-work industry with a 1-hour canal cruise.

The Red Light Secrets museum is housed in a historic 17th-century house on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal canal, in the middle of the Red Light District.

Unlike in the rest of the district, pictures are allowed and even encouraged in Red Light Secrets. This educational attraction aims to remove the taboo from the topic of prostitution and provide a unique peek into the business.

You will be able to sit behind one of the famous windows where the sex workers famously try to attract customers on the street, learn about the history of the trade and experience a day in the life of a working girl.

Your ticket also includes a 1-hour canal cruise.
