Musee de Marrakech is situated in the infamous palace that was besieged by the French,English and Spanish as a part of their plan to colonize Africa. Refurbished by the Omar Benjelluon foundation, the museum showcases exquisite Rabbati embroidery, pottery and ornate daggers etc. The soothing music that plays from the speakers and the stunning central atrium are a sight for sore eyes.

The museum is a great way to re visit the vast cultural heritage of Marrakech.

  • A nice interior, with local decoration. The museum collection doesn't seam huge, and I don't think it covers everything there is to cover. But as an old palace in the middle of the Medina I highly recommend a visit and a walk around.

  • It's almost painful to admit that this museum is not worth a visit. The physical building is very beautiful but has many issues:1) it's called the museum of Marrakech, but it's not displayed any historical information about the city. It more suppose to be a art museum, that would be even fine but 2) it's almost empty and what is displayed is of no interested nor it is explained. 3) it's small in 15-20 minutes you will visit twice. 4) the price (50 dh =5€) is high for what it gives, you feel cheated. In conclusion, it could be an interesting place but now is to be avoided.

  • A very nice Museum. The beautiful architecture, woodwork and objects are cast with modern paintings making it a great visit. The courtyard itself is a fantastic must see visit. It has great tile patterns and a central chandelier-lantern that will change your life! All the info is in French unfortunately for non speakers.

  • Not much of a museum, just a few nice rooms and painting to sell on the wall. Very questionable if worth the price if you have seen many things before. At least you can find a clean toilet insede.

  • Just like every other Marrakesh museum a total rip-off. You pay the amount of a good lunch to see a random collection of historic pictures (the rulers of Marrakesh), spread around 6 rooms and 1 big hall. Also, don't expect ANY ENGLISH SIGNS inside. Everything is in french and arabic which is simply insolence . People in this city simply don't give a damn about your experience. Stay away, please.
