Located near to Madrassa Ben Youssef this museum is in an old house and is a good stop to see architecture of Morocco. Must originally have been the house of someone wealthy, it is large and typically built around a central courtyard, the main feature of which is its huge lantern; the building also had its own Hammam. The exhibitions... More

In addition to being a beautiful building, there are several interesting exhibits. An artist paints and sells small cards, including personalized pictures. Downstairs there is an exhibit of his art.

The museum experience itself does not convince... The museum is quite small, all the information is French written, no English. Some of the art had price tags. Which makes it seem more like a gallery than a museum.

As I entered this building I was a little disappointed but once in the central area the wonderful lantern and typical plasterwork on the walls and ceilings were revealed.

This is an oasis of calm near the bustling souqs. Stunning inner courtyard with other rooms containing artwork from contemporary artists as well as a collection of older ceramics. Also contains an old hammam. Recommend the cafe in the entrance courtyard, very pleasant and relaxing

I enjoyed my visit here. It was a sleeper hit during my trip to Morocco. The museum had lots to see, and it was so tranquil there. The main courtyard was so serene with the flowing water and music. I can't believe this place isn't rated higher on TA.

Too expensive at 50 dh, there isn't that much to see, so it is kind of boring, there is no information in English, the art on the walls are for sale with prices around 500 - 800 dh, so it does not feel like you are looking at real local treasures. There are a few older items in the few... More

A special place in the kasbah of Maarakech . To find only with a guide and to reach only by feet. A characteristic square in the middle with a huge light in the ceiling . wanderfull corners . illumination poor ! Toilet facilities to be restored !

Not much to see in the museum. The museum itself is not well preserved. The only interesting is just the Moroccan tile and huge chandelier in the center square. Suitable only for Instagram location. I find it not worth it to pay 50 Dirham for the visit because nothing to look at inside.
