What a delightful little museum, located in an old Berber Chiefs house. It has interesting artefacts, a wonderful rug collection, and photographs of Berber life. What is a real treat is the journey through the village to the museum and then the amazing views of the surrounding village. The Guide is not only knowledgeable , but fun. The guides also... More

Set within the Jardin gardens this small museum is a look into the history of the various "tribes" of the Berbers. There is a small area of household equipment such as cooking pots and bowls, along with an amazing section showing Berber jewelry. This is an amazing room as it is lit in a certain way, with lights depicting stars... More

This is a modern and well laid out museum within the walls of the Jardin Majorelle. The signs are not in English but they do have laminated English guides at the beginning of each section and these can be carried around as you enjoy each exhibit. Am interesting look into the Berber history.

I visited both the Berber Museum at the Jardin Marjorelle and the berbere museum in Tazfa Ourika valley. Both are excellent and complement each other. The one in Marjorelle is impressive but the one Tafza was a more personal experience. Our guide Salah was excelllent and shared a lot of information with us

The Berber museum is a highlight of the fabulous Jardin Marjorelle, but many people skip it because it requires a slight extra fee. The cost is worth it. It contains a fantastic collection of Berber costumes, jewelry and other artifacts that help to enhance your understanding of the Berber culture.

Fantastic displays and artefacts = beautifully curated - although some more English Descriptions would be good. A must see for Marrakech along with the Jardin Majorelle if in Marrakech for a couple of days or more

Great collection of beautiful costumes, stunning jewellery, crafts and everyday objects. A really informative display, much more up-to-date than any other museum we saw in Marrakech. This exhibition has a real "wow" factor, and gives a great overview of Moroccan culture. Surprisingly inexpensive to visit.

A small museum in the Jardin Majorelle, located in the old painting studio. Meticulous and concise, the short tour gives you a pocket sized view of the Berber life without being overwhelming.
