“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Given the rich history of the city it represents, this museum is disappointing. There is really nothing much in it but the building itself is worth a quick look. It's better value for money if you buy the combined ticket for the museum and the Madrasa nearby. The Madrasa is much more interesting.

“OK but overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

The museum conserves a beautiful architecture but overall it is a bit too overpriced (50 dirham) as other attractions such as the Bahia Palace have the same architecture and offer a better value for money (10 dirham). Overall I wouldn't recommend a visit.

“Refurb Required”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Only worth a visit to see the building that the museum is housed in. I can't remember seeing such a poor exhibition in a museum anywhere I've been - almost so poor that its worth seeing!

“Brilliant Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

After much searching (and a few wrong turns!) we found the museum- and it was definitely worth the persistence! I would say that it's best to get the ticket for the museum and the medersa (islamic school) as both are unbelievable and worth the extra 10 dirhams. Like I said, it can be difficult to find so keep you eyes peeled for the signs and don't listen to the locals- most of them are intent on taking you the wrong way!!
