Peruse a showcase of authentic artifacts and original images featuring aspects of the widespread and mainstream uses of cannabis as a valuable medicine.

The Museum was founded by industrial hemp and medical cannabis pioneer Don E Wirtshafter in 2018, the result of Wirtshafter’s dedication to cannabis artifact collection for over 40 years. 

Exhibit reception: Tuesday, August 16th, 6-7pm, with a presentation by Don E Wirtshafter to follow in the large meeting room. Refreshments courtesy of the Friends of the Athens Public Library.
