“So so content, but stunning architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

One of the more incredible examples of Islamic decoration we visited. Highly recommended, esp. combo ticket with Ali Ben Youseff Madrasa which is equally beautiful.

“Simple exhibits, wonderful building, calming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

There are several rooms with varied pieces of art and history. The building is very nice. The large central courtyard is covered to it stays cool. A nice place to be when it is hot outside. It seems very calming after being on the streets for a while.

Not a large place, but worth the trip.

One wing had modern art.

“Another Marrakech must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Well worth finding
As with many of the places in Marrakech you get a lot for your money (YSL gardens an exception)
Beautiful tiling and architecture
Would have liked to have known a bit about the exhibits but this seemed to be the only place where there was no information in English - managed some with my limited French.
Nice hour or so spent in there though

“WORTH A VISIT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

2 hours well spent. A little of history, the architecture, the hammam. When I went they also hosted a very interesting photo's exhibition. A summary of Morocco's past.
