“Interesting architecturally.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Our guide took us here on our first day and not sure we'd have found it ourselves. Not a huge amount to see apart from beautiful architecture and a few exhibits. Unfortunately in common with a number of museums etc that we visited in Marrakech, there are no English translations. Thankfully this wasn't an issue for us as we are bilingual but others will struggle!

“Not worth the 50 dh fee, no English text to read.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Look out, it's not easy to get here.

Although the architecture is beautiful, it is rather dead and empty on the inside, though there are some interesting objects worth looking at. I went with a friend who doesn't speak French, and had to basically translate everything for him, since there are barely no English posters or explanations.

“Beautiful architecture with some items of interest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The tiling, plaster work and decor is beautiful, however the 'contemporary' art display is very poor - there is better art to be seen in the souks. The artifacts aren't all that old (on the most part) or interesting, and again there is no information in English (for those that cant read french) so take a guide book that offers some information. The central lantern (?) in the large room is amazing!

“Good local art.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

It's fair to say there is not much in here, I enjoyed looking at the art though and although it isn't worth the entrance price of 50Dhs, we got it for an extra 10Dhs added onto our Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa ticket so 80p.
