This unique permanent exhibition shows visitors how a single amazingly versatile plant species enabled the development of clothing, medicine, sea travel, agriculture and more, and how cannabis and hemp - which are simply different strains of the same plant - have been part of everyday life for thousands of years.After extensive renovations, Amsterdam’s Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum was officially reopened by Hedy d'Ancona, Dutch politician and member of the European Parlement on Paril 26th 2012. All cannabis enthusiasts are invited to visit us and experience our brand new venue! « less

My hubby and I visited here last May 2014. It's small museum though I find it interesting and fun. The guy in the reception was very nice and pleasant to talk to. He gave us some poster and postcards as our souvenirs. Worth a visit...

My friends and I smoke so the museum was interesting to us, but I imagine it would be boring for people who have no interest in cannabis or the legalization of it as the entrance fee is quite expensive. Having said that the ticket is for the museum, gallery and one other section I forgot to visit. You even get... More

I was recommended to go here by many people. I had high expectations for it but was unfortunately met with disappointment. It doesn't take long to walk around the area maybe a little over 10 minutes and you have seen everything. It takes about 15 minutes if you have a good look at everything. Lots of books, pipes and other... More

You can see: some books, some pipes, some photos and three plants. Takes you 5-10 minutes. Part two, 20 meters down the street, only has some things made out of hemp, eg. ropes and clothes. Takes you 5 minutes to see. Definitely a waste of time and money.

I really enjoyed nothing about this museum. It was overpriced, boring and so lacklustre I could have died on the spot. We booked tickets online and when we got to the booth, the woman didn't even have a clue what the internet was, never mind you could buy tickets on it. We eventually got it sorted out and entered into... More

Do not waste your time going here. Takes about 5 minutes to look around and there is nothing interesting. They then send you 20 metres down the road to part 2 which takes about 2 minutes to walk around and even worse. Serious even if you are a avid smoker you will be diapointed you wasted your money as you... More

Museum with a great history! And since you're in Amsterdam, where you can find at least 5 coffee shops in one street... It's maybe nice to know a little bit of the history behind; Hash, Marijuana and Hemp !
