Came upon it by chance as looking for something else. Beautifully restored Riad. History of rugs, why and how made very moving. They really need to be considerd as works of art and expression of culture of ordinary Berber women Really calm courtyard and restful roof garden with excellent coffee and complimenttary cake

Wonderful collection of handmade rag rugs, sensitively displayed throughout a beautifully renovated riad together with stories of the women who had created them.

Finding the museum is an adventure. Not worth the fee of entrance though. Poorly taken care of. Visit at your own risk and peril

You really must come here. It's well-signed from the Marrakech Museum and takes just 5 minutes. This former riad is beautiful and the rugs on display are delightful. Do take tea r coffee on the terrace for a relaxed break from Marrakech. You will also be allowed to visit as many times as you like for your 40 dirhams ticket.... More

Then rugs and the stories behind them are displayed thoughtfully in this beautiful ex Riad. The rugs are just beautiful and it is fascinating to learn a little of their creation and the story behind them. The building itself is stunning and so peaceful. Please make the effort to find this unusual little museum.

Very soulfully written stories to go along with the works of art. A story of the women not unlike any other country in the world. Beautifully displayed.

One of the most attractive places I have ever visitted, while this place is mainly about a unique type of carpets, the museum is decorated in the most beautiful way, not to mention the stunning house itself. A serious surprise! If you enjoy places of true beauty you got to see this!

A lovely riad that would be interesting in itself, filled with many examples of vernacular rag rugs. Free flowing improvised patterns a world away from established traditional patterns normally seen in Moroccan textiles. Eye opening stuff.
