Fantastically restored riad with lovely roof-top cafe. Check out the 1930's furniture from the Marmounia - exquisite. The artwork is interesting. Definitely worth a detour.

Definitely worth checking out, ignore all the kids telling you it's closed or a dead end they just want you back spending money in the souk. Aim for the Marrakesh Museum and you will start seeing signs up on the walls for this museum. Gorgeous building hidden down a tiny ally way. The rag rugs are different from those sold... More

We read many reviews prior to selecting Premium Morocco tours as my tour of choice. To say the least, all the other reviews were correct. EVERYTHING you planned and all of your staff were outstanding. From the moment we arrived at our first hotel until we left Khalid we were in the best of care, This Great man changed our... More

This hidden Museum has so much to offer. Both the exhibits and the building itself are exquisite. Patrick, the collector and building owner, has a great eye for artistic expression. He has sifted through vernacular crafts, in the form of woven and embroidered rag rugs from rural villages, to create a display of stunning visual delight. This is embellished with... More

nice riad, but pretentious french nonsense- I hate it when pretentious people turn lovely things into commodities to suite their own egos and pocket books.

This little museum is a fantastic addition to the list of must visit places in the medina of Marrakech. Patrick has put together a fantastic collection of popular art in the shape of handmade artisan floor coverings. Not to be missed

A lovely and quiet museum displaying 'rag rugs', which offers a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. My wife and I really enjoying looking around this beautiful riad, with the owner and staff being very welcoming. If you come across the museum, hidden away down some back streets, be sure to visit.

Charming little museum in a Riad which is like somebody's home. The "rag rugs" are displayed in every room, even the toilets, Not very easy to find though.

We wandered around and found the Riad off the beaten tracks, it was quiet but has only opened recently. The museum is dedicated to the art form of rug making by the poorer class of tribeswomen who live in the hills I understand (hopefully) and the rugs are made from scraps of material from clothing they have owned. The base... More

A new museum showing Berber rag rugs as works of art, which is set in a beautiful Riad. Displays are interestingly situated in bathrooms and bedrooms. Patrick, the owner, is wonderfully enthusiastic and has many ideas about how the museum can be developed. Very moved by the stories behind these beautiful rugs.
