Marrakesh needs more museums and obviously the museums need more funding for better displays and explanations. Still an enjoyable respite from shopping all day.

Beautiful leafy courtyard. I had the whole place practically to myself. Take the time to enjoy the artifacts. I enjoyed this even more than the Marrakech museum. Close to the square.

This was our Day 1 experience in Marrakech and we quickly came to realise that in North Africa in general their idea of a museum is quite different to the glossy, air conditioned, clean museums here in the UK - aren't we lucky. Having said that it was a very interesting place with some stunning architecture and history to it.... More

It has a small entrance but opens up into a beautiful house, packed with interesting exhibits that carry explanations in Arabic, French and English. It seems this place isn't on the main... More

Fairly easy to find if you watch out for the signs off the Riad Zitoun el Jedid. The ground floor exhibits were not particularly exciting; the courtyard is pleasant, with lovely scent from the jasmine. There is nothing particularly encouraging about climbing the stairs to the first floor, but this is well worthwhile as the tiling is superb, and the... More
