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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
