“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I really liked this place. It is not very big, but you will find nice things to see. From very old books, plates, jugs or even mouse traps to the modern art. There were some very nice paintings exposed! It is worth seeing it, with or without a guide!

“Thank you for this wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The Dar Si Said is a Must-have for all those who have a real interest in Moroccan culture; we even got a special access to rooms that were usually closed to the public!

“Colorful Tiles and Woodwork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This house was probably very ornately decorated with furnishings and fabrics. You have to use your imagination as the place is empty. There are some paintings and exhibits that are mostly in French explanations. It is a quiet space compared to the streets outside. A lovely spot to see and admire the colorful tiles.

30 Minutes are all that is needed to see this house.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The collection itself and the museum are just okay. Nothing special. But the building itself, especially the second floor, is grand. The plaster work is superb.
