“Not worth the 50 dh fee, no English text to read.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

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.

“Beautiful architecture with some items of interest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

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!

“Good local art.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

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.

“Nice, little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

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.
