“quiet, very charming little riad style.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We are very lucky, this house is 2minutes walk from where we stayed. Quieter in the morning and you pay 20dh to go in. We did not learn very much about the history but I just liked to taking photos inside and enjoy the architecture. Highly recommended.

“Interesting and serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We were staying right around the corner from the Dar Si Said so decided to pop in. Such a great find! It's 10 dirhams to enter. The hours on the door are a bit funny- we came when it was supposed to be open, but the door was shut. We wandered around a bit, then returned- door still shut so we knocked and it was unlocked and we were welcomed in. The elderly gentleman who runs the museum (I who the collection belongs to) speaks good English/French. Such a sweet man- we loved him. He was so happy to explain how the museum operated.

The collection is varied and interesting. We were actually the only people there for our entire visit- I suppose because the door was shut! I loved the artifacts and the information book that was given to us- very informative. Takes a while to read, but I learnt quite a lot in the process. A great place to come in the heat of the afternoon.

“Very sweet little gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

It's one street away from Riad Hayati and you can just duck in for a quick visit anytime. Small though it may be it has a very valuable colelction of textiles and crafts from all over Africa.

“great collection with good explanations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

I really appreciated the very detailed explanations of all the objects on display, as well as the organization of the museum into rooms as a tour to Timbuktu. I probably learned more here than I did anywhere else in Marrakech.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

All the guidebooks rave about this place, but the accompanying text with the exhibits is incomprehensible, and doesn't provide much context. Try the Berber museum in the Jardin Majorelle instead.
