Amsterdam is known for having a soft spot towards cannabis. Therefore it makes perfect sense for the city to have a museum dedicated to this controversial aspect of society. The Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum attracts many curious visitors from around the world. Established in 1985 in the famous red light district of Amsterdam, the Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum is a tribute to the history of hemp and cannabis. What the Hash, Marihuana &Hemp Museum offers The Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum offers visitors an insight into the history of one of the world's most commonly used drugs. It also showcases the earlier uses of the cannabis plant. It is interesting to discover that, aside from recreational consumption, cannabis and hemp were used for various medicinal, cultural and religious purposes. Through the ages, the cannabis plant has proven to be one of the most versatile and renewable resources ever known to humankind. The museum shows the commercial viability the plant for the future through photography, films, documentaries and paintings. The Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum also holds a carefully chosen selection of items from the world's largest collection of cannabis-related objects. It covers many of the aspects of, and reasons for, cannabis consumption. In order to display even more of this unique collection, in 2008 a new venue was added - the Museum Gallery, located just down the street from the original museum. Visitors exit the museum through the Sensi Seed Bank, flagship store of sister company Sensi Seeds, where, in addition to buying T-shirts and accessories, you can also browse the large selection of medicinal-grade cannabis genetics from Sensi Seeds! History of the Hash, Marihuana and Hemp Museum This unique museum was founded by Ben Dronkers in 1985, after over a decade of collecting different kinds of objects associated with the cannabis plant. He believes that the Museum is not only of interest to cannabis users, but caters to those who are interested in learning about the plant, and even those who are simply curious about the relationship between its industrial and psychoactive varieties. With this extra-ordinary exhibition, the Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum definitely makes the list of Amsterdam attractions that tourists should not miss visiting.

Nice museum! Especially when you take someone with you who knows nothing about cannabis. I think this museum does a great job in destigmatizing cannabis! Thank you mister Dronkers

I learned so much visiting this museum, and you will too, high or not. The history of hemp as a renewable resource and fiber material has been lost in the United States' rush to criminalize its first cousin, marijuana. This museum goes far in bridging...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
