Look out, it's not easy to get here.

Although the architecture is beautiful, it is rather dead and empty on the inside, though there are some interesting objects worth looking at. I went with a friend who doesn't speak French, and had to basically translate everything for him, since there are barely no English posters or explanations.

The tiling, plaster work and decor is beautiful, however the 'contemporary' art display is very poor - there is better art to be seen in the souks. The artifacts aren't all that old (on the most part) or interesting, and again there is no information in English (for those that cant read french) so take a guide book that offers some information. The central lantern (?) in the large room is amazing!

It's fair to say there is not much in here, I enjoyed looking at the art though and although it isn't worth the entrance price of 50Dhs, we got it for an extra 10Dhs added onto our Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa ticket so 80p.

The museum is pretty hard to find and the entrance is somewhat high for Moroccan standards (50 dh), but the museum is worth a visit. The central 'room' is huge and beautifully decorated. The artefacts are allright. We liked the contemporary exposition, with about 20 modern paintings, the most.
Furthermore, it's a quiet and relaxed place. When you're done wandering through the souks, it's nice to just sit around and have some peace and tranquility.

I am a fan of museums and Art galleries and make a point of visiting them in every place I travel . This has to be the most disappointing Museum I have ever visited in 30 years of travelling. It was embarrassing. Where have all the Artefacts gone ? and as for the exhibition of ' Modern' Art one would have seen better at a Primary School.

The Building was of vague interest but if this was meant to be the main Municipal Museum of Marrakech then someone needs to take it in hand.

Unless you have a interest in the building do not bother - it was also the most expensive entrance fee we paid in Marrakech.
