Learn about local history and art at Marrakech Museum, a cultural institution as notable for its permanent collection of antiques and artworks as it is for its setting. Founded in 1997, the museum occupies the main building and grounds of the Dar Menebhi Palace, a 19th-century structure. Artistic and architectural flourishes across the museum provide examples of a classical Andalusian style, with fountains and tile work throughout. The museum tells the story of the development of Moroccan art over the centuries, with a particular focus on pottery and embroidery.

  • Everything in the museum was written in Arabic and French. It was missing information in English. It’s a pity we couldn’t learn something new because of that.

  • Stunning room well worth the £4 entry. Lots of instagram photos in this place. Allow 30 minutes for a visit. Has a nice cafe outside for a drink in the courtyard.

  • Didn't understand it as it was all in French. Quite small too. Much better going next door to the newly refurbished Ben Yousef building, which costs less as well.
  • Very Nice museum, but most of all because of the architecture of the old palace. The museum itself is very simple and only have info written in French. Some of the exibition is local art paintings, that you can buy.
  • The museum is quite small. It is probably informative but they only provide French and Arabic introduction and you will not understand what is going on with all the beautiful pottery and ceramic.
  • It was nice but there was no explanation through the path. But if you need a break from the sun it’s ok to spend 50 dh (5 euros)
  • Small museum. Not a big time commitment: even if you go slowly, an hour is plenty of time. 50 dirham, cash only. Plaques are in French and Arabic, not English. (I google translated.) Very small exhibits with a little information about ceramics, ceramic architecture, tea, tea pots, weapons, riads, and Moroccan history since about 1600. Two contemporary art exhibits as well in the side rooms, at least one of which I liked. Main courtyard and the architecture of the building itself was also interesting.
