“Very interesting - visit to see the chandelier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Well worth a visit to see and find out about Moroccan arts and crafts. But the highlight is the magnificent courtyard chandelier. A nice break from the hubbub of Marrakech.

The museum also has a nice little cafe to put your feet up in the shade :)

“Get a guide!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We didn't get a guide so couldn't understand 90% of what the museum was about - get yourself a guide if you don't speak French or Arabic! To be honest there's not much to really see.

“Respite from the medina, quite interesting, some beautiful items”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The museum is next to the Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa in the northern medina. It's 50 dirhams to enter (just over £4) but if you can buy a combined ticket for both attractions for 60 dirhams.

Not massive amounts to see but it is all rather beautiful. The light in the main hall is serene. We found it welcome respite from the medina and a chance to check our guidebook too rather than do that in the fray outside!

There is a cafe in the courtyard at the entrance to the museum.

Tip, the walk from the museum back to the Jemma el Fna is signposted. Just turn left when you exit the museum and follow the red signs.

“Not worth it one bit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

As it is the museum of Marrakech I thought it would be quite good so had high expectations. It was 6€ for a double entry to the museum and the old university that's just down the lane. They had a few bits of jewellery, clothes, weapons and some new art but it was very scarce and only explained in Arabic or French so not good for only English speakers. The building was ok and it did have free toilets. But overall not worth it as you could spend that money on a nice lunch that would last twice as long.

“a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

this museum doubles as an art gallery as well. plus you can get a combined ticket for it and the Koranic school (Madrassa ben Youssef).
