The building is beautiful. It’s very fresh and quiet with the garden in the middle. I was more interested with the architecture than the exhibit. Definitely still worth a visit if you want to get out from the bustle of the Médina.

The museum doesn't have a huge collection on display, but is set in an interesting garden and provides some peace and tranquility after teh hustle and bustle of the medina
