“Not an impressive museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Museum is very nice but exponats aren't so much. Is it small and you'll visit it in max half an hour. You will remember the place where museum is located, the building itself and pics showing how museum was restored 20 years ago.

“A simple but nice museum! ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

You can start with a coffee or a cold orange juice to the yard. The museum is small and max in an hour you will have done. Nothing unforgettable but worth a visit, and it's almost certain that when you visit souks you will pass from there...

“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.
