    Vancouver's Herb Museum is a one-of-a-kind collection of drug war and herbal medicine history.

    Located in the famous Pot Block of “Vansterdam”, the museum is home to 5 rooms of exhibits and more than 1200 artifacts from as early as the first century AD all the way to modern day. We are a non-profit society.

    Exhibits include:

  • Ancient Cannabis
  • Medical Marijuana (1720s to present!)
  • Industrial Hemp
  • Hallucinogens/Psychedelics/Entheogens
  • Opium
  • Coca
  • Non-Psychoactive Botanicals
  • Mushrooms of all varieties magical, medicinal and edible
  • Coffee, Tea, Tobacco & Chocolate

    Bring your own BC bud and burn while you learn in our Art Gallery Lounge- we have volcano vaporizers, bongs, bubblers and papers too. Local Cannabis and drug peace art decorates the walls, featuring local geniuses Ken Foster, Megan Allard, Dottie Locks, Dave Douglas and CC's Bob High.

  • Our first two rooms and art gallery are always completely free!
  • 1/2 hour in the Full Museum + Bubbler & Bong: $2.50
  • 1 hour in the Full Museum + Volcano, Bubbler & Bong: $5.00
  • Bring your own bud.


    Find unique Vansterdam postcards and psychedelic drug war prints in our giftshop, along with stoner essentials including locally made bong cleaner, wax smoking 'silly string', handcrafted cannabis jewelry, pipes, aphrodisiac chocolate bars and vintage drug war T-Shirts.
