“Peaceful Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This museum is mostly in French. If you English is your language then I advise you study up on the museum before you go or get a guide.

The large room in the center is the main draw of the museum. The tile and open space give you a moment to sit, relax, and take in the room. There are paintings on the wall, a small history museum, and a vendor who will write your name artfully in Arabic.

The entire place will take about 30 minutes to complete.

“The building outshone the exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Truly stunning. You have to get the combined ticket with the Madarsa Ben Youssef, which makes it good value and they are both beautiful.

“Without a guide we spent 10minutes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Not worth your time, more of Marrekech you will find on the narrow streets of Medina. Not too much stuff inside, only some paintings on the wall. maybe it should have been the building but without a guide we did not feel what to look for

“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...
