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

Much better than the Bahia Palace just down the road. There did not appear to be the tourist groups going around this one however so it was much quiter, I guess the coaches can't get close enough! Good collection of wood/paint/mosaic work along with a reasonable selection of artefacts. A small pair of binoculars would help you to see the... More

Not a lot of exhibits considering it calls itself "museum of Moroccan art" but the building was lovely, especially the 2nd floor where the tileworks were amazing throughout. Toilet lady roams the courtyard, so if you need to go, make sure you have small change to give her.

The museum was fascinating to say the least. We are avid art lovers and so, this was an opportunity we did not miss. The art inside was admirable. The museum itself was a treat for the eyes. The museum was a bit hard to find but the struggle was worth it. The architecture of the place reminded us why we... More

Well worth searching this place out and spending an hour or so here. It is close to the Bahia Palace down some side streets/alleys - look out for the signs for "Musee Dar Si Said" on the walls. (Note - it is closed on Tuesdays). It only cost 10 dirhams each to enter and we found it to be much... More

Wonderful buildings with excellent ceilings and a fantastic internal courtyard with fountain. The items on display are very interesting particularly the photos of people in traditional dress.

You leave crazy streets of Medina full of noise and people and step in this calm, peaceful and beautiful courtyard full of plants and birds. Hardly any noise at all and quite cool given how hot it was outside. It was a very calming and relaxing experience! We really enjoyed our experience and it is worth wondering through crazy streets...

This is so tucked away in a back street we struggled to find it. There are some interesting artefacts but the displays are dated. It is incredibly cheap to get in so is worth a look but the best bit was as we were leaving someone took us aside to show us the harem area which was closed to the... More
