Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum

Oudezijds Achterburgwal 148, Amsterdam, 1012 DV

The Basics

As one of Amsterdam’s top attractions, the museum can get busy, so book your admission ticket in advance to avoid waiting in line; tickets usually include an audio guide, which deepers your knowledge and lets you browse at your own pace. Some multi-attraction packages can be personalized and allow you to combine the museum with unconventional attractions such as the Museum of Prostitution or the more traditional Rijksmuseum and Muiderslot Castle.

Coffee Shop Culture

Amsterdam is one of the only European capitals where public consumption of cannabis is tolerated. Interestingly, so-called coffee shops, where you can purchase cannabis cigarettes and edibles, are generally more popular with tourists than locals. Look out for licensed sellers such as Grey Area, Original Dampkring, or The Bulldog The First as you wander around the city center, or visit the Cannabis College to learn more about safe consumption.
