I have rusty A-level French and could understand everything ok but others were really struggling with the French/Arabic only signs. A really interesting place and worth a special visit since it has things like ouds (musical instruments), embroidery, pottery, art etc that I haven't seen anywhere else. Lovely central courtyard is now covered over and has an amazing wooden centrepiece,... More

I intended on buying the '3 in 1' ticket but the third location is currently closed for restoration... as with the Ben Youssef madersa there isn't an awful lot to see in here but it is undoubtedly worth going in; the architecture is really quite something and there is a brilliant atmosphere in there! I would definitely go again!

When you pay so little for entry, it is hard to complain. Was nice to spend an hour or so in the museum but do not expect to see the museum in tiptop shape as it is has been neglected over time. Worth a trip if you have some time to kill but don't fret if you miss it.

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
