“Great architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Wonderful buildings with excellent ceilings and a fantastic internal courtyard with fountain. The items on display are very interesting particularly the photos of people in traditional dress.

“A little museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Very nice buildings and architecture, but not a lot of museum which was disappointing. Highlight was excellent calligrapher who wrote out our names in Islamic script - beautiful.
Beware- this place is in the old town and cannot be reached by taxi - so have to walk. Signs not very good and we were led the wrong way by a 'guide' who met our taxi and offered to show us the way. Not a good exprience.

“Classical beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you`re visiting the Museum of Moroccan Arts in Marrakech, you will first notice the beautiful calm that this place has. It`s also very good and helpful if you want to learn new interesting things about Moroccan culture. The combination between the design and the informative side really makes visiting this museum a one of a kind experience. The building is not very big, and one the great part about it, is the fact that it`s usually quiet, and not as crowded as other places. To sum it up, going to the Museum of Moroccan Arts is, in my perspective, a learning and spiritual visit.

Nice place to visit and to learn a little bit more about the Morocco culture. Thought i was expecting a little bit more on the cultural side and on the articles exposed.

“beautiful and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

excellent place full of the cultural expereinces that you would expect - and very reasonable to get entry as well. Perfect to spend a few hours in the middle of the hot day examining the past and present
