Took us a bit of time to find this from the souqs, but glad we did. The musee is a restored 19th century riad and has stunning examples of zellij tile work. The musee houses art displays, which you can buy, as well as historic...More

The museum is next to the Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa in the northern medina. It's 50 dirhams to enter (just over £4) but if you can buy a combined ticket for both attractions for 60 dirhams. Not massive amounts to see but it is all...More

It is a very good place to check the modern art of Marrakesh. The main attraction is the huge chandelier that looks like a UFO (and actually, it does) Some art work is beautiful but as a modern art museum, depends in ones taste of...More

The museum & artwork OK, but the museum's building were more impressive than the former. The tile mosaic work on the walls, floor & fountains were amazing. Very nice stop- I'm glad we did not skip this site. I selected 1-2 hours to visit but...More

I am not a fan of contemporary art so this place had a couple of strikes against it. I did, however, like the artwork in the former hamman, dealing more with historic Marrakech and/or portraits. Some of the exhibits were frankly a bit tired looking....More

The museum itself is not much, but the old house is beautifully restored and can give you a glimpse into how the wealthy ones used to live.

Goodness me. What can i say about this place? Took half an hour to walk through the narrow streets as a car cant get through them. No signs. Had to ask people so many times where to go. The Ben Yousef Madrasa is next door...More

I'm not understanding something after reading these reviews, people expect to pay no money to enter a museum. Its beautiful inside and the pictures don't do the place justice because the lighting doesn't work well with cameras. That's chandelier is huge and magnificent and the...More

50 MAD’s to enter. ($5 USD) I wasn’t super impressed by the art. There was little to see, and the modern art wasn’t that great. There were like 7-8 pieces I liked (attached), so if you’re expecting an amazing art gallery, this isn’t it. The...More

We went directly there and we visited on our own. So, you don’t need a tour guide. Maybe you can book it there, I think that it’s better.
