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

After the crowded other attractions in M'Kesh this is a nice quiet converted house to relax in - especially on the roof! Not a lot to see but that itself is fine.as we have visited everything else in other years. Next ot the Madrassar. Very well signposted! The clean small square nearby has local shops and is good for people... More

Musee de l'Art de Vivre; Marrakech This place was really hard to find, even with a friend who is a local, helping me & lots of stops to ask people in the area. There are some helpful signposts, but not enough for us! This Museum was, in fact, originally conceived & restored as a commercially run 'maison d'hote' called "Jnan... More

This is a new museum, not to be confused with the older, more established Museum of Marrakech, which is nearby. Both are worth seeing. This place is quiet, peaceful, and off the beaten path, and offers a charming look at Moroccan life. By the way, It's one of the few places in Marrakech with adequate signs to guide you there.

I came across this museum only this time and discovered it has been opened for only a couple of years. It is based in a typical marrakechi house in the deep part of the medina. not the easiest place to find and taxi drivers do not know where it is. Interesting place with some interesting information. a beautiful terrace at... More

we found this by accident after visiting the Jewish area. It was a great place to relax and enjoy being in this city.We had tea on the terrace and admired the flowers.The exhibits are about domestic things placing objects in their context in rooms.I have never felt so chilled out in a museum before!
