The collection in this museum is a summary of Moroccan hand arts. The collection is good but it is too small, you can finish all the museum half an hour. In addition entrance fee (40mrd) is too much for Moroccan standards. However I like the concept of this museum; if you have free time and you are also near to... More

we ended up here like most tourists after wandering through the windy streets near the souks and hustle and bustle of the medina, this is tucked away on a residential street with hardly any signage, we got lost to find it. We spent a pleasant hour cooling down inside cool marble rooms, admiring the art, clothing and costume displays, it... More

Just on the perimeter of the souk we were looking for a cool (temperature) place when we came across this cool museum. Converted recently it is clean and serves snacks if you want them and cold drinks. It's 40 Dirhams entrance and the drinks are reasonable priced but there are also 3 floors of Moroccan oddities to peruse and a... More

We were misdirected by the taxi driver but in the end we had no complaints and would highly recommended it. A bijou little commercial museum. It looks more like someones private collection and is wonderful. It is set up as a series of fully furnished rooms in a restored riad, each room has a different theme, my French is too... More

For (a bit steep) 40 dinars one gets to see a collection of historical items with some documentation on Moroccan fashion in this renovated riad. Also terrace on the roof for a bit of rest.

Convereted Riad - now a museum. Its nice and clean and what there is to see is semi-interesting, but hardly enlightening. If you're walking past - pop in. Pay about £3 to get in. And see about eight rooms of clothing, insence and a toilet - most of which is supported by information in......... French. Nice roof-top to relax on... More

It was complete waste of time and money. There is nothing much to see and the ticket price is relatively expensive.

Sometimes less IS definitely more.As is the case in this delightful little Riad.If textiles,fabric and stitchwork capture your interest (or if you simply appreciate interior design and like to find ideas about using colour with flair) then this tiny museum ticks all boxes.Bring a sketchbook and laze in the comfort of the rooftop gazebo to record your impressions.Such an unexpected...

This is a very small nice RIAD bought up to date in a classy way.. Well worth seeing and it is very close to other attractions. It is very well signposted now (better than anything else here!) and we took a taxi anyway. In November it was not as furnished as in the photos but still interesting stuff in each... More
