On our last trip to the Dam we came upon this on TripAdvisor. I have always been fascinated with high end brothels and what they were like in their heyday. Wow, I was so not disappointed with this, we had the entire place to ourselves...More

Yab Yum is a brilliant museum and a must visit when in Amsterdam! Mitch who was the manager for 20+ years is superb and needless to say fantastically knowledgeable! The building is exactly as it was in the days when the brothel was open with...More

We really weren't too sure what to expect from Yab Yum, but we were so glad we decided to take a look inside. As far as Brothels go, this place would have been as good as it could get. The decor was amazing with no...More

We had a good chuckle here at the quality of the exhibits/plastic girls, other than that there wasn't much on offer. Place is run by the guy who used to manage the brothel, he comes across as a bit creepy. The entire story of the...More

Is a very interesting place. The ex manager of the place is now the guide. He told us interesting stories about the girls who worked there, clients, most of them public figures. That place may be a story for a film or a book.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
