The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum is the oldest and most important museum in the world dedicated to Cannabis Sativa L., also known as hemp or marijuana.

The museum manages and exhibits a unique collection that encompasses all aspects of cannabis, functions as a knowledge centre, facilitates scientific research and plays an important informative role. 

The plant has a long history and many different applications. Everyone has an opinion, but current beliefs and knowledge are often based on assumptions, half-truths or anti-cannabis propaganda - on lies instead of facts.
