The building is not without interest. It has been a while since it was properly cleaned though. There is practically no collection, no explanation about the city. It is misguided to suggest this would be a museum about Marrakech. Very expensive as compared to other attractions. Bad.

You pay 80 Dirhams which is £6 each quite a lot but that gets you into two places which makes it better value. Its quite interesting from all the possibles you may consider going to. Its worth remembering they have a free flushing loo which are few & far between (be warned) The best bit there is a Moroccan scribe... More

loved it, it was a horrid rainy day, torrential, found this little gem no problem, its delightful. Pay 60 dinars and this gets you into the school house next door.

There are very few exhibits here, but the ones available are beautiful. The price of 50Dh would be expensive alone but for 60Dh you can get into the Madrasa also, and this is worthwhile.

Interesting and quite beautiful, a peaceful place but definitely not a highlight of Marrakesh. You can similar similar things in many other places in Marrakesh and probably better.

Rather keep walking past the entrance and go to the nearby medersa a 100m away. This place is borning,not much to see and expensive relative to other much more beautiful places. Also if you can't read French like me then an absolute wast of your time. Worst place we visited in Marrakech

Visited with my partner, lots of information too bad so little in english, difficult, and encountered more than a few people that didnt read french, so not very tourist friendly i would say. Nothing extraordinary and honestly not worth the visit if you not fluent in french, Disappointing
