I only wish more of the captions were written in English, but this museum is a wonderful visual exploration of the city regardless of the language barrier and there was local art for sale in the museum as well

Beautiful museum with fabulous tiles, very nice exhibits, and interesting artwork. Like the rest of the city, its a maze and so easy to get lost!

We enjoyed our visit. The museum is quite small, but there are some nice examples of Berber and Arab art. The calligraher inside makes pretty little pictures with your name in Arabic which are really good value.
