Preserving and Presenting Cannabis and Hemp History.
It only seems fitting that The first Cannabis Museum in the USA should be in the state the legalized it first...Colorado! (unless you consider Alaska in 1975!)
A New Museum For The Already Mile-High City.
The Colorado Museum of Cannabis and Hemp History in Denver, Colorado is dedicated to Preserving and Presenting Cannabis and Hemp History in a Safe, Educational, and Entertaining environment. The Museum's grand opening in Lower Downtown Denver (LODO) is scheduled for 2016. Check back for information on Museum Galas, Black-Tie events, and other Fundraisers.
The Museum presents the full History of Hemp and its uses, dating from pre-biblical times, till modern day.
The Museum is currently digitally archiving our massive collection of the first 500 High times Magazines. These archived magazines will be available for Museum visitors to view in the Magazine Archive Room.
70's Marijuana Culture
View Marijuana inspired household items, fashions, head-shop posters, antique pipes and smoking devices, music, and much much more, all displayed to entertain and educate Museum visitors.
The Museum has many old cannabis prescriptions dating from 1897-1935, along with many old cannabis medication bottles......some still containing medicines!
Follow the prohibition movements through a time line of events culminating in the prohibition of Cannabis and Hemp in the 1930's.

Showing Marijuana-Themed comedies to daytime visitors, the Museum's in-house Theater will also present special "Summer Movie Nights", as well as being available for private rental after hours.
