The visit is free. You can just walk in and poke around. The young man that works there is extremely friendly and super informative. You can go downstairs and check out the plants, and if you bring your own weed with you, you can smoke it there.

Visited 5 years ago and again yesterday. Great owners who are very informative. Always pay to see the garden and get a lifetime membership.. :). You can sit and vape with the volcanos or a bong after they check your weed or just roll up and chill. They also recommended some epic coffee shops too. Support this place it's dope.

When I went to Amsterdam at the beginning of 2016 with my girlfriend, we just sort of went there without planning much. We wanted to see everything. One of the places that sticks out in my mind is Cannabis College. When you walk in, there's like a big library of everything about cannabis. But you can pay a few euros,... More

The guys there were really helpful, went there twice, the first time we paid €3 for our lifetime entrance to the garden, tried the volcano for the first time the lady in there told us some good coffeeshops, I think it's all ran by sensei seeds as they have a shop across the lake and the hemp and marijuana museum...

If you visit Cannabis College you basically do not need to go to Hemp museum. The guy with long hair knows everything marijuana related. Just ask him, as he is having many visitors every day and not talking that much by itself. =)

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
