My cousin (who's a local in Amsterdam) took us to visit the Hash, Marijuana & Hemp Museum. We hadn't even heard about it and my cousin had never been to visit it - but we thought it sounded cool so decided to check it out....and we're very glad we did too!
It is a very interesting insight on the sheer amount of things that can be done (and have been don in the past) with hemp, such as Body Shop soaps, Adidas shoes, etc.
It definitely gives a good insight on things! If you have a half hour or so to spare I would definitely recommend checking it out!
if you want to know something about hash or marihuana you can go here.

The Hash museum opened its doors to public in 1985. It is located right in the middle of theRed Light District. Inside the museum you can find a world of information about the plants. Through a large number of pictures and posters you get a good impression of the cultural, religious and medicinal aspects of the plants. The museum also houses a collection of traditional pipes.
El museo de la marihuana abrió sus puertas en 1985 y se encuentra en pleno barrio rojo. En el interior se realiza un paseo por los 8.000 años de historia de la hoja de cannabis, desde su uso por chamanes para la adivinación hasta la utilización más práctica en la confección de tejidos y papel o la fabricación de fibras para los cabos marineros en el siglo XIX, pasando por la utilización como medicamento.
Exactly as titled, it's a museum for the various usage of hash, marijuana and hemp with an emphasis to medical benefits and various products made out of hemp. Lots of visual and virtual explanations and details - quite interesting but not very entertaining....you know what I mean.
Located along the river in Dewallen, the entry is I think EUR6.
When you are there dont be shocked from the girl who will gives you the ticket,I know that there is no free places in her body from Tattos,but its okay.
At Hash museum you will see the history of Hash and Marijuana also some methods to get them out of the country,there is a room there called getting high room to smell some smoke "makes me feel dizzy".
they are selling seeds also right there.
Fees: 5 Euros.
This was a really good experience. It's very small and I'd heard mixed reviews of the museum but it was well worth the entry fee. good information about the history of cannabis and hash production as well as the non-narcotic development of hemp as a product. They have an amazing cultivating room where they grow all different strains of the plants with hi-tech hydroponic technology.
This is a cool place to check out. Kind of small, and obviously geared towards tourists. But the fact that they have a "Grow Room" with live plants is surreal if your from somewhere oppresive like the US! If your in the area, and have a few minutes to kill, check it out.
This is a serious museum charting 8,000 years of history with exellent displays and exhibits, including some LIVE plants!
Small admission price is worth it, especially to rid of AMERICAN brainwashing(!)
It is the only one museum in Europe, which show the 8000-year history of cannabis. It shows how the plant was used by various civilisations in Asia for medicine and clothing.
This museum will teach you everything you ever wanted to know, and much you maybe didn't, about cannabis and related products. The museum does not promote drug use but aims to make you better informed.
This place was fab n groovy :).. A "colourful local" took our few euros - and we wandered round looking at all the various paraphanalia associated with the growing and using of marijuana. We read about the history, religious significance and medicinal properties of weed. We looked through glass panels into the indoor garden growing healthy thriving plants. .. can't remember much else, couldn't have been that interesting after all!
This museum tells about the history and use of cannabis and hemp. Not only about the drug, but also the production of paper and textiles as well as its medicinal benefit.
It also explains the process of producing hash and marijuana and the various rolling and smoking methods.
Monday to Saturday 11:00 am to 10:00 pm Sunday 11:00 am to 5:00 pm

This is only the shop window: do go inside and get accustomed to all there is to see, read and smell!
This Museum we visited while in Amsterdam for the VT meeting of March 13th 2004.
Of course we had been there before but to some VT members it was unknown or they had heard about it but who can believe that it exists without having seen it??
Well, here it is......a permanent exhibition about the HISTORY and USE of CANNABIS around the world.
Where?? In AMSTERDAM'S CITY CENTRE,
next to the 'SENSI SEED BANK" GROW SHOP.
Don't miss it when you happen to be in Amsterdam, my beloved, atmosphereic, SPECIAL AMSTERDAM.
I stopped in here to see what all the hype was about. It was very interesting how hemp produces so many purposefull products and used for many years. In the back room there is a grow room and sitting in there was Dr.Vaporizer (sorry, I can't remember his name) but he is a activist promoting the healthful uses of marijuana smoked.
Details the 8,000-year history and many uses of cannabis and hemp, including the production of paper and textiles as well as its medicinal benefit. The process of producing hash and marijuana and the various rolling and smoking methods are all explained in detail. Visitors can observe dozens of varieties of marijuana cultivated in optimal conditions.
