“A lot of people have a lot of opinions on cannabis, while actually missing some basic knowledge about the plant,” explains Gerbrand Korevaar, curator at the museum. “We aim to improve understanding about this exceptional
plant by delving into its past, present and future.” The museum displays the private collection of its founder Ben Dronkers, who also owns Sensi Seeds and HempFlax. Having always been fascinated by cannabis and hemp, he founded the museum in 1985 to show the plant’s rich history and versatile use in medicine, clothing, agriculture, and more.
