I remember really enjoying this museum some years ago and while the building itself and the gardens that provide the museum's setting remain lovely, the items in the museum are not well displayed or labelled and look a little jaded.

The building is beautiful. It’s very fresh and quiet with the garden in the middle. I was more interested with the architecture than the exhibit. Definitely still worth a visit if you want to get out from the bustle of the Médina.
