peaceful place

Not too much too see in the museum but the building was wonderful with a lovely view from the roof top terrace of the mountains. Suggest a taxi to here as difficult to find!

We had 24 hours in Marrakesh and hired a tour guide to take us on a whirlwind tour of the Medina. We started at the Museum of Marrakesh, a lovely oasis of calm in the hurried Medina. We were amazed by the architectural detail and the beauty of every line. I would highly recommend a visit. I would also recommend... More

Don't miss this beautiful place during your visit! It's not much, but the vibe was great. Just the music and the feel of the place. We didn't really read any of the plaques or anything. Just enjoyed it.

We visited the museum purely as we happened to be going past. The 50DH entry fee is 5 times the price of every other pay on entry tourist attraction that we visited, though to be honest its still only about £4 at most so is still easily affordable. The building itself is beautiful and worth the visit, though I didn't... More

Very impressive building, very spacious and grand, well worth a visit, though maybe not quite justifying the 50 Dh entrance fee. As previous reviews state the huge chandeliers are pretty awesome, would have made more sense if you could have English translations, there is only so much information you can get from a guide book, would recommend a visit.

A lovely elegant building in the middle of the busy souks. A great way to avoid or escape hot crowded streets, the displays are not that good but the building is wonderfull. Small cafe to get a lunch is worth the visit

Impressive building so worth a visit however none of the descriptions of what we were looking at were in English and our French isn't up to scratch.

Not a lot of exhibits,but the building itself is well worth a visit.A visit will not take long so have a meal at the little cafe opposite. Great food served by a friendly young man.

I had only planned to visit Ben Youssef Madrasa and took advantage of the offer + €1 on the entrance fee to visit the museum as well. Even you are not a musuem person you will enjoy spending an hour here. There is also a small restaurant in the courtyard where i enjoyed a lovely salad and mint tea for... More

The real thing to see at this museum is the actual building. Beautifully restored it's truly stunning. The exhibits were nice to look at but I would have been happy just to pay to visit the building. One of my favourite things in Marrakech.
