“OK but overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

The museum conserves a beautiful architecture but overall it is a bit too overpriced (50 dirham) as other attractions such as the Bahia Palace have the same architecture and offer a better value for money (10 dirham). Overall I wouldn't recommend a visit.

“Refurb Required”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Only worth a visit to see the building that the museum is housed in. I can't remember seeing such a poor exhibition in a museum anywhere I've been - almost so poor that its worth seeing!

“Brilliant Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

After much searching (and a few wrong turns!) we found the museum- and it was definitely worth the persistence! I would say that it's best to get the ticket for the museum and the medersa (islamic school) as both are unbelievable and worth the extra 10 dirhams. Like I said, it can be difficult to find so keep you eyes peeled for the signs and don't listen to the locals- most of them are intent on taking you the wrong way!!
