Uncovering the Past, Present and Future of the Cannabis PlantThe Hemp...

Uncovering the Past, Present and Future of the Cannabis PlantThe Hemp Museum Gallery is located in the centre of Barcelona in the Palau Mornau, a stunning edifice built in the 15th century, which was remodeled by modernist architect Raspall in 1908. It offers a unique permanent exhibition, on the development of the cannabis plant as a versatile source for industrial, nutritional, medicinal, sacramental and recreational purposes. The collection consists of rare items that founder Ben Dronkers, over the past forty years, collected throughout the world. The museum focuses on modern citizens, who despite repressive government measures, are not deterred, to gain knowledge about this particular plant independently.

I went in out of curiosity, but then looked up, at that incredible ceiling and was blown away. Obviously, it has all the mariuana paraphanelia (except hemp oil, sadly), but the staff are also very friendly and chatty, and the botanical illustrations are beautiful!

A very informative museum about a rather misunderstood plant. The fee is a little steep and it's not a huge museum but the content is fascinating and the building is gorgeous.

It was really interesting. You see a lot of history of hemp and marijuana and possibilities how to use that ingredient in many different ways.

A lot of people associate Marihuana with drug use. This museum explains the history of the usage of Marihuana throughout the middle-age until now and one gets really surprised.

So pleased we popped in here. €9 entry fee was well worth it. The building alone was stunning. Very informative and definitely worth a visit..my husband and I are both non smokers but we both enjoyed this museum. And who knew Popeye was actually smoking cannabis in his pipe and not "spinach"!!
