Well documented, great exhibits, well researched museum inside the Jardin Marjorelle. Must visit as part of Garden Tour. Aimed at international crowd, I found it more informative than some of the local museums.

We were told about this wonderful museum by our guide in Marrakech, who highly recommended it. It is easy to reach, although up a fairly steep hill, and a short walk from the closest car park (just outside the Women's Cooperative for Arran Oil). Sarah was a warm and gracious host, incredibly interesting and very knowledgeable about his subject matter.... More

This small museum showcases the important contributions of the Berbers of Morocco and their unique, vibrant culture. The clothing exhibit was fascinating to see the intricate and creative ways in which they dressed with what their locales naturally provided. The Berbers are strong and proud people and the museum easily shows this in the well edited collection on display.

Good exhibit to showcase Berber culture, including clothing, jewelry, tools, etc. It is located in the Majorelle Studio inside the gardens. It was very interesting. No photographs allowed.

What a delightful little museum, located in an old Berber Chiefs house. It has interesting artefacts, a wonderful rug collection, and photographs of Berber life. What is a real treat is the journey through the village to the museum and then the amazing views of the surrounding village. The Guide is not only knowledgeable , but fun. The guides also... More

Set within the Jardin gardens this small museum is a look into the history of the various "tribes" of the Berbers. There is a small area of household equipment such as cooking pots and bowls, along with an amazing section showing Berber jewelry. This is an amazing room as it is lit in a certain way, with lights depicting stars... More

This is a modern and well laid out museum within the walls of the Jardin Majorelle. The signs are not in English but they do have laminated English guides at the beginning of each section and these can be carried around as you enjoy each exhibit. Am interesting look into the Berber history.

I visited both the Berber Museum at the Jardin Marjorelle and the berbere museum in Tazfa Ourika valley. Both are excellent and complement each other. The one in Marjorelle is impressive but the one Tafza was a more personal experience. Our guide Salah was excelllent and shared a lot of information with us
