The Music Hall

Music and substance use has a long and complex history, at once respected as part of the art and creative drive of musicians and in turn villified as a threat to the moral fabric of society.

At different periods throughout history, we witness conventional soceity turning a blind eye to the influence of drugs within music. At other times music appears as the voice of revolutionary spirit, a voice that the authorities can no longer ignore and therefore seeks to control.

This section of the Museum is dedicated to music that has in some way been influenced by substances or their use
