This museum was one of the highlights of our trip. It's found down a quaint winding street (but what isn't in Marrakech). The two women proprietors were welcoming and pleasant. For $40, I got to make my own perfume with the help of one of...More

Visited this museum in my final few hours in Marrakech. Left me a last imprint of the charms of Marrakech and a lot more about what I could discover about Morroco.

Beautifully restored old riad with a calm, quiet, great atrium where you can relax or have a tea at the rooftop, worth the 4$ entrance. The rooms all contain themed exhibits around moroccan culture.

Like others, we stumbled on this little museum accidentally, having got a bit lost in the streets, en route to another attraction. However, this proved to be an interesting diversion, although it doesn't take long to complete the tour. Sadly, there are few description labels...More

I lost my way in the souks and I ended up in this mysterious museum not listed in the lonely planet. Great surprise! The museum itself is peaceful&quiet, they have a small but very educative collection about everyday's life in Marroco. I really recommend this...More

This museum offers a great glimpse into traditional life and arts of Marrakech. The setting is in a refurbished riad. The courtyard has a cafe for tea, coffee and meals, and provides a very pleasant respite from the bustle of the souks. There is also...More
