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

This museum is located in a residential area south of the medina. I found it by following the excellent walking tour advice in Insight Guides Marrakech, Step by Step. Most of the displays are in small rooms off the central courtyard and you can see weaponry, jewellry and musical instruments, for example. The First floor has impressive mosaics, carved guilded...

The building that houses Dar Si Said is very pretty and the entrance fee is nominal, so I would recommend it as part of the sightseeing route south of the Fna, but the displays are very haphazard and poorly labelled. It isn't educational and a great deal more could be made of the exhibits aesthetically as well.

I got the Quuranic School and Museum ticket for 60 dirham and both were pretty blah. The school was beautiful architecture wise but I could've easily skipped them both and not missed anything.

This was very enjoyable for a break from the sun. It was nice and cool and all of the artifacts were really interested and unlike anything that you would see in Europe.
