The Hash, Marijuana and Hemp Museum in Amsterdam
An interesting trip through the history, indistrial and recreational use of the cannabis plant. Right in the heart of Amsterdam in the Red Light District. But it is not all joints and bongs. It is taken seriously.
The Hemp Museum
Covers the history of hemp plant uses. From industrial to recreational and spiritual.
The hemp plant is one of the oldest crops used by humans. As a material to make textiles, ropes, paper, paints or soap. As a source of oil and lamp fuel. And of course as a medicine and recreational drug.
This long history is presented through around 7000 exhibits from all across the world.
The Hemp Gallery
Puts its focus on artistic use of cannabis and its influence on social or spiritual questions. A small art gallery with presentation of painters and photographers. Has an original Mondriaan on display, as well as paintings by David Teniers de Jongere, Adriaen Brouwer, Hendrick Sorgh and Adriaen van Ostade.
Adult visitors may feel the effects of marijuana vapors. There are five different marijuana strain plants cultivated at the museum. And in the special vaporizing room located on the premises you may sample them.
Marijuana Museum opening hours
Every day from 10:00 to 22:00.

How to get to Marijuana Museum
Looking for the museum exact address, do not confuse another old Red Light District canal - Oudezijds Voorburgwal (Old Side in Front the City Walls) with Oudezijds Achterburgwal (Old Side Behind the City Walls). The canal where the museum is located is just fifty yards further from the other one.
It is almost impossible to get to the museum with a car. We advise you to leave your car at the Bijenkorf department store parking garage, and walk to the museum.
