The Best Museums in the World to Visit While You’re High
Marijuana and art are best friends, there is no questioning that. You’ll be able to name uncountable amounts of artists who use cannabis on a daily basis as an aid to get inspired for their work and creations. Even those ancient ones you would have never imagined were stoners too.
And marijuana isn’t only great for creating but for that extra inspiration while you’re visiting a museum as well. Whenever you try doing this for the first time you’ll feel as if you’d been doing this the wrong way all of the times before. And since weed is great for museums and galleries visits, I’ve decided to make a list of the best museums in the world to visit while you’re high to add to your travel bucket list.
Museum of Bad Art – Massachusetts, United States
Now perhaps if you’re an art affectionate you might feel slightly guilty for being high as you walk through the hallways of big emblematic museums, such as the Louvre, thinking that perhaps you aren’t fully concentrated to absorb it all in. Firstly, relax! Your visit is yours to own, no one should hurry or worry you, and being stoned actually opens your eyes and soul to art in a sort of way.
Anyway, a museum definitely suitable for being extremely baked at is the Museum of Bad Art in the US. This museum’s slogan is “art too bad to be ignored” so you’ll definitely have a laugh as you stroll through this collection of terrible masterpieces. And it may even give you that extra boost of confidence to free your mind as an artist yourself.
Besides, smoking in the state of Massachusetts is legal so take that weight off your back!
Best Museums in the World: Electric Ladyland – Museum of Fluorescent Art – Amsterdam, Netherlands
Well, if you’re having a trip around the most famous stoner travel destination, visiting museums while you’re high shouldn’t be that surprising over there.
If you’re looking to have a real trippy trip, then head for the Electric Ladyland Museum of Fluorescent Art in the city. Of course, we can’t ignore Jimi Hendrix’s influence on the establishment’s name, which, in case you’re not aware of, refers to his third and last studio album by the artist before his death, which was quite trippy itself. Get ready for crazy colors, lights and weirdly shaped sculptures.
MACBA – Barcelona
If you find yourself visiting Barcelona, another city famous for its cannabis culture, then definitely don’t skip visiting MACBA, the Museum of Contemporary Art, while you’re stoned, of course.
This one is more of a classic type of museum but contemporary art itself tends to think outside the box itself. Check out which are the current expositions at the time of your visits, although you’ll most likely not be disappointed.
MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: teamLab Borderless – Tokyo, Japan
Now, if you’re lucky enough to find some marijuana in Tokyo (this can be quite hard due to the local restrictions, watch Enter The Void to understand what I mean) then definitely blow your mind off in the teamLab Borderless exposition in Tokyo. This place is like a huge playground of digital art, all interactive and surely great fun. I was there myself and I even had a trippy experience while being completely sober, imagine being high! Tokyo is like a trip to the future, and the guys at teamLab sure know what they’re doing in terms of art and future.
Museo de James Turrell – Salta, Argentina
Now if you’re looking for a more soothing experience, head to the South American country of Argentina. Even more, if you’re into non-touristy destinations, great for the curious traveler. Up in the country, in the province of Salta, the Museo de James Turrell (Museum of James Turrell) is located. James Turrell is an American artist who experiments with light and space. His South American museum is unique for being located in a winery called Bodega Colomé.
Is there a better combination than some exquisite wine, a joint, and art? Besides, surrounding the area, in the neighboring province of Jujuy, you’ll also be able to see the Cerro de Los 7 colores (The Hill of Seven Colors). This is a breathtaking sight that is composed of 7 different colors, hence the name, all of which derive from different types of rocks, therefore the diverse range of colors. Furthermore, it is also believed that each color/rock has formed during different time periods, producing visible color differences as well.
Now that you know some of the greatest museums in the world to visit while you’re stoned it’s time to start planning out your next trip! Make the most of this covid-19 situation as you make plans for the next trip as soon as it’s possible to travel again. And don’t forget to check out the map for possibly interesting surrounding areas to your destination of choice.
