“Specialist interest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Marrakech museums are similar in being small and typically focused on native people's heritages, but also feeling a little dated. This place fits that mold. If you're interested in the craftwork of Berbers and other Moroccan and Saharan peoples, then do visit.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Just next to Riad Hayati you can duck in and see some lovely textiles and artisan work from all over Africa. Very friendly little place.

“museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

One not to miss. There's a lot to see here of historic interest displayed in a double Riad that feels more like someones home than a museum

“A unique collection of Morrocan and African artifacts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

A unique museum set in a house in the heart of the Medina with an excellent and wide collection of both Morrocan and African artifacts. Just wander around the museum and enjoy. The only disadvantage : labelling of exhibits, sculptures etc is limited,

“Enjoyable and interesting anthropology.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Intriguing museum with interesting collection arranged to present a view of life for various tribes and nomadic groups. Information available in English as well as French, not sure if available in Arabic. Really enjoyed wandering through this museum and the large amount of information available to supplement the exhibits. Unfortunately it closed for lunch while we were there, otherwise we wold have stayed longer.
