“not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

There is lots to enjoy here. Having wandered through downstairs and been delighted with everything and ready to leave you still have the best to come. My wife was quite taken with the court yard and Gazebo. My best bit was the ministers' room which I thought was dazzling nothing else we saw on this holiday matched it's splendour.

“Lovely Interior Rooms; Easy to Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Very inexpensive museum showing what a prosperous house were like. The public rooms (upper floor) are stunning and we took lots of photos there. Quiet interior garden was a respite from the busy Medina. The displays of clothing and jewelry were interesting, if a bit terrifying, given the size of some of the items that were worn. A great look back into a lost society.

“Under-appreciated attraction in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This is the place to go to view high-quality, historical Moroccan crafts, such as rugs, intricately carved wooden doors, painted leather, jewelry and pottery.
The building itself is beautiful, hidden in the southern medina, less than 5 minutes from the Bahia Palace. In fact, the building was the residence of the brother of the Bahia Palace's owner, a 19th-century vizier.
If you appreciate these crafts, you should also go to the much smaller Maison Tiskiwin, which is about two minutes away. It similarly concentrates on crafts, but with a larger North African focus.

“Beautiful architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Close to Baha'i palace (3 mins walk), we thought it was the nicest interior architecture of the sights that we saw in Marrakech. It was quieter too which meant better photo opportunities. Only 10Dh each entry fee.

“As advertised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Collection was underwhelming, but the architecture was amazing in the interior. Some of the mosaics are truly spectacular! Overall, should only be a quick stop in a day of sightseeing.
