On paper a good one to visit ... in reality, do not bother. Grand space with enormous handing thing at its centre made rather gloomy by the courtyard translucent cover. Not much to see and what there is is poorly displayed and unimaginatively curated. It...More

North African artworks are displayed here in meandering rooms. The architecture alone is a marvel. Take some time to wander through

This is an old house in which a brilliant wooden ceiling, very well restored, has been preserved. The museum personnel was friendly, providing useful information about the place.
