Inside the main museum the architecture, fountains, ceilings and light fittings are wonderful. However that's about it. Thought the displays were average and at 50Dh thought overpriced compared to other places nearby such as the photography museum.

Actually the most published attraction is the huge lamp in the room center, and I've to say, te entire space is made by that and is beautiful. Also mosaics are impressive and the marvellous works of cedar wood is impressive. But. But all the other spaces are badly organized, not so attractive and randomly exhibited. Just some nice paintings in... More

Whilst the internal architecture and workmanship is of a high standard, for a 'Museum of Marrakech' it did not have much to see in terms of exhibits, which is rather surprising considering the history and indeed international fame of Marrakech. Perhaps the most spectacular exhibit is the massive chandelier suspended above the internal courtyard.

Spectacular setting. Spectacular art. Go in and just have a look about. All the information is in Arabic and French which was a down point. But still amazing.

but the museum and exhibition takes only 15-20 minutes to walk through. If you are looking for a break from the busyness of the souks and the warmth of the sun the museum is the perfect choice. During our visit we were the only people going through the museum so you have plenty space for looking at the different items.

The building itself is nice inside, beautiful tiles and lighting, but the exhibits, the few that they had, had no information translated into English so you had no idea what you were looking at! Waste of time. Huge contrast to the Berber museum located in the Jardin Marjorelle which is much better. Give this one a miss.

The Museum of Marrackech is located in the medina in a 19th-century palace and displays a large collection of Jewish, Berber and Muslim artifacts.May purchase a ticket from here for 50dh, that also covers entrance to Ben Yousseff Medersa, and the Quabba Almoravide. You may also get your names nicely written in Arabic just for 20 dh in the main... More

The museum is a nice break away from the hustle and bustle of the medina. Once inside and into the main hall, you are struck by the architectural beauty of this place: symmetry, harmony, and great attention to detail. The large brass chandelier dominating the center of the hall is quite impressive in size and intricate design. The exhibits are... More

Amazing interiors. Intricate ceilings, Exhibits are not many, but the building itself is a wonderful exhibit to enjoy. You can obtain a nicely calligraphic card or bookmark with your name on it. Located in the middle of the old town/Madina. Only accessible on foot through amazing markets.
