Hash Marihuana Hemp Museum Tips (19)

Interesting use of Hemp, Hash & Marijuana!

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!

Maria has a Museum

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.

The Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum

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 know what I mean.

Located along the river in Dewallen, the entry is I think EUR6.

Hash Museum

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.

A Weed Museum?

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(!)

The Hash Museum

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!

Open 11.00am-22.00pm
