Fodor's Review

Legendary Dutch cannabis pioneer Ben Dronkers acquired the historic Palau Mornau, in the Gothic Quarter, and opened it in 2012 after a major renovation as the world's largest museum devoted to this controversial crop. The building alone makes this a must-visit: a 16th-century noble palace later reconfigured in exuberant Modernista style by architect Manuel Raspell, a contemporary of Guadí and student of both Domenech i Muntaner and Puig i Cadafalch, with jewel box-like details of stained glass, carved wood door lintels, coffered ceilings, and ceramic tile. The museum collection of art and artifacts celebrates the history, cultivation, processing, and consumption of hemp in all its industrial, medicinal, and recreational aspects. Alas: no take-away samples.
