The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum is the oldest and most distinguished museum in the world dedicated to cannabis.
Since opening in 1985, the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum has welcomed over two million visitors. The museum manages and presents a unique collection that reveals the amazing versatility of the cannabis plant.
Some hash production methods are thousands of years old and have been passed on from generation to generation.

A series of anti-marijuana propaganda films and books released in the 1930s helped fuel hysteria about cannabis.
Hemp is the key to a sustainable future. The plastic that can be obtained from hemp is lightweight, durable and biodegradable.
