Very nice buildings and architecture, but not a lot of museum which was disappointing. Highlight was excellent calligrapher who wrote out our names in Islamic script - beautiful. Beware- this place is in the old town and cannot be reached by taxi - so have to walk. Signs not very good and we were led the wrong way by a... More

If you`re visiting the Museum of Moroccan Arts in Marrakech, you will first notice the beautiful calm that this place has. It`s also very good and helpful if you want to learn new interesting things about Moroccan culture. The combination between the design and the informative side really makes visiting this museum a one of a kind experience. The building... More

Nice place to visit and to learn a little bit more about the Morocco culture. Thought i was expecting a little bit more on the cultural side and on the articles exposed.

excellent place full of the cultural expereinces that you would expect - and very reasonable to get entry as well. Perfect to spend a few hours in the middle of the hot day examining the past and present

The museum is set round a peaceful courtyard. As all sites in Marrakech very cheap to get in but try to avoid people who look like attendants latching onto you. They show you quickly round and then expect money so that they can grab the next person, don't give you the chance to linger and look at leisure.

Sadly many of the museums in Marrakech apart from the Berber Museum in Le Jardin Marjorelle seem to lack many of the artefacts one would expect in a country with such a rich history. The same is here, however don't go for the artefacts but do go and experience the wonderful atmosphere and calmness in the courtyard and marvel at... More

I really liked this place. It is not very big, but you will find nice things to see. From very old books, plates, jugs or even mouse traps to the modern art. There were some very nice paintings exposed! It is worth seeing it, with or without a guide!
