About
Established by Ben Dronkers in 1985, the Hash, Marihuana &Hemp Museum is a tribute to the history of hemp and cannabis. What the museum offers its visitors is an insight into the history of one of the world's most commonly used drugs. The Hash, Marihuana & Hemp Museum also holds a carefully chosen selection of items from the world's largest collection of cannabis-related objects, the result of over a decade of collecting different kinds of objects associated with the cannabis plant. 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.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

If you’ve an interest in the history of marijuana and hemp, then this museum is a must whilst in Amsterdam! :)

It’s not huge so very doable within a couple of hours. There are three sections to the tour, the marijuana museum, the coffee shop in the middle where we had some delicious tea, followed by the hemp museum. Using the audio guide for information, you learn all about the history and production of marijuana and how hemp is used today.

If you’ve got some spare time, 100% check this place out!

An unconventional yet captivating experience, this museum offers a rare glimpse into the storied past of cannabis. While much of the subject matter may seem taboo, the exhibits thoughtfully unveil an array of insights seldom explored in mainstream historical accounts. From cultivation methods to cultural impacts across eras, the museum's meticulously curated displays shed light on a topic often obscured or oversimplified. An educational treasure trove for the curious mind, a visit promises to broaden perspectives and challenge preconceptions about a plant that has profoundly influenced human society. For those seeking an enlightening detour from conventional museums, this unique institution is a must-visit destination.

A "museum" more like find anything remotely related to hashish, hemp or marijuana and place it in a showcase for tourists. Even the "grow rooms" looked like an amateur had grown a few plants, hardly representative of a weed loving city. Big thumbs down.

Jana and I really enjoyed learning more about the history of my favorite relaxant.
I liked the parts of the museum that discussed hashish, and its manufacture in the middle and far east. I remember several good Lebanese varieties, and noted the Nepalese temple balls and finger hash, I used to get in Aspen CO, and the stamped slabs I got in Boulder, CO in the 70's.
We were also amazed at the impact hemp had on creating all this, Hemp rope and sails were essential to the seagoing explorers moving across the oceans to discover new lands
and on the modern side, it was fascinating to see new products made from hemp fiber, while benefitting the planet!
Nice exhibit and an excellent visit

The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum provides access to the museum next door. It's educational for newcomers to cannabis but lacks interactive features. Seasoned enthusiasts might find it less engaging and may prefer to skip this visit.

I learnt a lot about the marihuana culture, I've never heard before. Also how it works in Netherlands (about legalisation) and also why it should be legalized. It was a great experience to visit both sites: the museum and the gallery. Also I thought the price of entrance was quite good. Thanks for the staff, they were very sympathetic.

We were visiting Amsterdam during Christmas break and found this place a bit by accident. It was well worth the visit. They had lots of cool info and artifacts. It was amazing to see all the things that can be made with hemp including an electric scooter!

A nice highlight to our Amsterdam trip. The photo booth is a fun touch. Relaxed and not overly crowded, or rather a large space for the artefacts. Very cool to see the plants towards the end. Loved that there was two museums for the price if one!

Rip off. It is way too expensive for nothing. I will never recommend it to anyone. Not worth the time (eventhough you wont spend much since it’s so small). Only one room with pictures.
It gives you nothing but an empty purse.
