Fodor's Expert Review Hash Marihuana Cáñamo & Hemp Museum

Sant Pere and Born-Ribera House/Mansion/Villa
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 Moderniste style by architect Manuel Raspell, a contemporary of Gaudí and student of both Domènech i Montaner 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.
