Nice attractions...can easily be done in an hour. Dont ride the camels...rip off...wait to do that elsewhere. Make sure to go inside the meeting area of the sultans and see the reflection/cooling pool.

We had the place to ourselves when we went last week and enjoyed wandering round the beautiful flower and cactus gardens, and seeing some frogs and the tortoise. I personally enjoyed the garden more than the art! There were some tables and chairs but sadly no cafe facilities - perhaps this will come. At 40 dirams entry fee, it was... More

We cycled here from our hotel, Mosaic palais aziza. It took 15 minutes and wasn't too hair raising! What an oasis; we were charmed by this beautiful garden and gallery. We were very lucky to visit whilst a Mali Binebine exhibition was on (ends 30 April) we were knocked out by this artist's work which was very effectively curated. There... More

Take a cab and let it wait for you while visisting. The garden is more interesting than the museum of modern art. Specially the cactus garden is worth the trip. Visit Musee de la Palmerie the samde day that you visit La Majorelle.

A real gem out of the beaten track: It s an oasis of art and nature only 10 or 15 minutes from the mayhem of central Marrakech but well worth the detour. We had the galleries and gardens to ourselves and went back twice in two weeks- everytime a dellightful visit. Choose one of the very special fragrances sold in... More

We found this little gem at the second attempt. The sign boards aren't helpful. But it was worth the visit. Whilst not the biggest collection of art, the examples are varied, and probably because we were not overwhelmed by the quantity we could more appreciate the quality. There was no guide, nobody to ask about the exhibits, and not a... More

Invited to an art exhibition at the Musee de la Palmeraie at sunset. Great space and good exhibition of sculpture and paintings set in lovely gardens. The cactus garden well worth a visit.

Right out in the sticks by what I think was a national forest for palm trees. It's a small modern art exhibit with other pieces set in a garden. The art wasn't that special, but the garden was fabulous. It is only small, but we were the only ones there and we said we imagined it was like Eden would... More

Quiet little gallery - we were the only people there, and had the place to ourselves. The employee we spoke to was obviously very proud of the place, and no wonder. Several wee nooks and crannies where you could sit with a book quite happily for an hour or two in the garden, and large selection of modern art with... More
