“Worth a quick look, needs a bit of updating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Worth going to after a bit hard to find. Lovely examples of traditional tiling and arts but a bit run down. One to tick off the list

“You can miss it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I rate it two stars just for the nice overview on the patio, it's zellij decorations and huge lamp. All the rest is absolutely not worth the price (50 dh, a shame if compared to the 10 dh of the superb Medersa Ben Youssef nearby)

“A waste of a good space”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

No doubt the Marrakesh Museum is housed in the 19th century Mnebhi Palace, but the displays are of such poor quality that it is daylight robbery to charge 50 dirham to see its contents. If you must, the only way to see it is to buy the combined ticket with the Ben Yousef Merdesa at 60 dirham. We went with four children aged between 13 and 21 and none of them thought much of it either.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Given the rich history of the city it represents, this museum is disappointing. There is really nothing much in it but the building itself is worth a quick look. It's better value for money if you buy the combined ticket for the museum and the Madrasa nearby. The Madrasa is much more interesting.

“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.
