It is a wonderful example of Moroccan architecture. There is nothing much in English except the embroidery from Fez and one place where they want you to buy music. But the embriodery is just amazing since they do this without any drawing. Paintings are very nice and the courtyard is very ornate. Very calm place but worth the trip. I would have given a 4 star if they some English explanation.

One of the more incredible examples of Islamic decoration we visited. Highly recommended, esp. combo ticket with Ali Ben Youseff Madrasa which is equally beautiful.

There are several rooms with varied pieces of art and history. The building is very nice. The large central courtyard is covered to it stays cool. A nice place to be when it is hot outside. It seems very calming after being on the streets for a while.

Not a large place, but worth the trip.

One wing had modern art.

Well worth finding
As with many of the places in Marrakech you get a lot for your money (YSL gardens an exception)
Beautiful tiling and architecture
Would have liked to have known a bit about the exhibits but this seemed to be the only place where there was no information in English - managed some with my limited French.
Nice hour or so spent in there though
