There are a couple of absolutely beautiful rooms in the museum but not much else. There is some information on the history and some artwork on display but not many exhibits. It's 50dh entry so more than the palaces. I'd recommend going but you don't need to spend long here.

A great place to see, beautiful architecture and some lovely interesting art work. Only downside is no guide or book to explain what you are viewing. But a definite must for Marrakech.

This is a good little stop for any visit to Marrakech. There aren't a lot of exhibits in the museum but some of the rooms are quite beautiful.

This is a small attraction which is not expensive to enter. Unfortunately the expalnantion of the items on display is either in Arabic or french which was not helpulto us. However, it is a decent attraction.

To be honest it's worth a visit to take a look at the building but you only need to spend about 10 minutes there.

All the descriptions were in French language so it was hard to understand what we are looking at. The main hall looks astonishing!

Not the biggest museum but still worthwhile.Amazing costume exhibits and pottery.The central room houses a huge 'lantern'which was so big it was difficult to photograph The museum has a cafe out in the courtyard which unfortunately due to Ramadan was closed when I was there

I really enjoyed my visit to Musee de Marrakech. The main atrium is fabulous with the huge ceiling feature makes a fabulous photo opportunity. Stroll through the rooms which house some fabulous modern art work produced by very talented artists. A lovely way to pass a very hot afternoon.
