The museum is in the heart of a Berber village. I did feel like I was intruding. It is very primitive with their clay bread ovan... More

Loved it. If you want to get a taste of the local heritage and culture, something that goes a bit deeper than the markets and the touristy attractions, this is it. Worth a visit.

This museum was an awesome little bonus experience, tucked into the middle of Jardin Majorelle. The museum explained this complex culture through well-designed displays of jewelry, clothing and cultural artifacts. Don't miss the jewelry room, which is just magical in its setup.

The young lad who did the tour is from the Berber Village so he was very knowledgeable. It's not what you expect, but it's still a must go. The views from the top is amazing. There were so many children in the village that came out of the wood work and were asking for money. I felt like I just... More

Best display of jewellery I've seen in ages, and wonderful costumes (some still worn in parts of Morocco), household goods and more. Don't miss it.

Great afternoon looking around the Berbere village and the museum was on the way. The guide was great and very friendly. The museum had many items that day back to 1400. Really nice

Finally a place of Morocco's history, illustrated with photographs which is more rare.De it was created to be lively and to support indigenous .Top cultural place to see and be enjoyed without moderation! one to two hours provide contact and pleasant place. you can also have lunch or a cup of tea on the terrace.

The museum is devided on different themes - some everyday equipment, clothes, jewelry and videos. It is fast visited but as a result you get some ideas how the life of berbere was. Here in museum it seems to be more colourful and rich than what you see on the countryside alive. Same in Finnish: Museo on jaettu eri osioihin... More

Amazing little museum of berber life and culture. Would recommend if history, culture and lives appeal to you. To find this little hub in the madness of marakkech was fantastic.

Lovely gardens and beautiful museum to enjoy. There's a plethora of succulents and other interesting plants to enjoy. Also, the cafe serves beautiful fresh salads and club sandwiches.
