It is sad that a museum is in such a poor state. I went at 9:20 am and it was closed until I asked the man who was drinking and smoking with his friends. No change was available so bring the exact admission fee in coins. The toilet was overflowing and smelt terrible. No toiler paper but that is common... More

Not expensive to get in and all, and well worth it for the stunning architecture. We were not disappointed by this museum at all, and got some really nice pictures. Didn't take long to walk around but definitely worth a visit!

The building fabric is worth a look....the exhibits are a bit few and far between but interesting enough....quite a lot of Berber items on show...at times there is an art exhibition.

While the entrance and the ground floor are very plain the courtyard and upper floor contain beautiful titling and stucco work. Very picturesque and cheap to visit.

This is a very interesting museum almost as much for the building itself. There are many exhibits to keep your interest and a lovely garden, which is cool in the heat of the day.

We were really impressed with this museum, as it had amazing architecture and hardly any other visitors, yet was less than half the price of the Museum of Marrakech, had exhibits that are just as good and significantly more English commentary, which gave our rusty French a welcome break! If you visit just one museum in Marrakech it should be... More

This is an excellent museum with numerous interesting objects illuminating the history and culture of Morocco, all housed in a wonderful building with exquisite decoration. A must when visiting Marrakech.

Again this was one of the highlights of our week exhibited in glass cases in rooms off the main room. The central courtyard had a lovely fountain . The one large upstair room with a spectacular ceiling and tiled walls. Really worth a visit

What an amazing building with suite after suite of breathtaking rooms, each one different, yet giving a feeling of magnificence and restrained Arab world taste. Another must and easy to find and to walk to.
