Since April 2015, the Palau Mornau is part of the Modernisme Route, an itinerary that takes you through the Barcelona of Gaudí.
Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch were the architects who, together with others, made Barcelona the world’s capital of Art Nouveau. The Palau Mornau, home of the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum, is one of the 115 selected constructions, which show that Modernisme has strong roots in Barcelona and that Modernisme is still an art that’s alive and a vibrant part of city life.
Through the streets of Barcelona you can take a walk on the Modernisme Route, following the small red stones set into the pavement. You will find these paving stones in front of Palau Mornau and the other Modernista constructions along the Route’s itinerary.
The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum is located in a stunning Modernista palace. It’s called Palau Mornau, an edifice built in the 15th century and renovated in 1908 by the Modernista architect Manuel Joaquim Raspall (Barcelona, 1877 - La Garriga, 1937). In 2012 it was completely renovated, returning the spectacular stained glass windows, the wood flooring and magnificent wrought-iron ornates to its original splendor, to hold the world's largest collection dedicated to the cannabis plant.
