Absolutely nothing of any interest to see here. We went on a rainy day. There were no signs to get here and once we got in... There was nothing of any significant interest. Waste of 10 euros.

This museum is small enough to appreciate its contents. You do not have to spend more than an hour or so visiting this museum. There are many interesting artifacts and explanations are in French and English. Having a guide is helpful. The architecture in itself is beautiful.

Like a lot on Marrakech it's fine. Museums and attractions don't compare with the big boys of city breaks but in mk terms it's fine. And it's 10dh so can't lose really Nice displays Nice mosaics and nice arch. Displays are ok. Some of the long English descriptions are Google translate specials it seems or pigeon English.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel as it is literally a 2min walk away. The architecture is wonderful and there is plenty to see and explore. The gardens in the middle are quite small, but nice enough. Worth exploring if you are in the area, 10dirams if I'm correct to enter.

The beautiful ceilings and the artefacts, quiet courtyard - a nice escape away from the main crowds. Stop at Le Dejeuner restaurant on the way there or back as it's lovely and the food is fantastic

It is a good example of Moroccan design and architecture. The Moroccan signature tiles are intact for you to observe. Moroccan museums are in serious need of rejuvenation in general, this is one of the better ones.

This is tucked away, but perserve and find the place as it's well worth a visit and the entrance fee won't break the bank either. It's between the Fna square (no more than 10 minutes stroll) and Bahia Palace (about 5 minutes). When you wander around downstairs you'l be wondering why you did visit. The exhibits are a bit sparse... More
