Trip Planner: Africa / Morocco / Marrakech-Safi / Marrakech / Marrakech Museum
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. With our custom trip planner, Marrakech attractions like Marrakech Museum can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Marrakech Museum reviews
A nice place to learn more about Marrakech if you have the time. Do keep in mind that they close during lunch hours so be sure to plan your visit around this.

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.

A hidden gem! 50 dirhams well spent. Beautiful building, it was empty when we visited. This museum does however need some TLC and restorative work.
From all the museums I visited in Marrakech I enjoyed this one the least. Entrance fee is 50 dirham and it’s not worth the money. It’s very small, the art collection is mediocre unfortunately. The cleaning lady also scammed us with toilet fee although that was not officially mentioned anywhere. The building in which it is hosted is quite nice, however, with an interesting main courtyard.
The central internal courtyard here, with its archways, stained-glass windows, intricate painted door panels and colourful geometric mosaic tilework, was stunning and I took lots of snaps. Beyond this, the range of exhibits on show was limited and supporting signage was mostly in Arabic or French so couldn’t make out what was going on Saw everything in under 40 minutes, a real let down considering the MAD70 admission fee and spending my life walking around in circles in the medina trying to find the place.
Another beautiful riyadh, lovingly restored and exhibiting some interesting paintings and ceramics. I loved the spacious central room in particular.
I liked the restored building quite a lot, especially the restored main hall with ab impressive huge chandelier. Most of the exhibits are only marked in French in old unmaintained printouts and the museum is rather small. So even though they entry is rather cheap I had seen everything in a very short time.
