|About these ratings|
Neighboring the Ali Ben Youssef Medersa in the heart of the Medina, the Marrakech Museum (Musée de Marrakech in French) offers a glimpse into Moroccan history and culture. Housed in a late 19th-century palace, this museum displays wonderful examples of both traditional and contemporary art, all of which were collected by local arts patron Omar Benjoullan.
While most exhibits lack English descriptions, many recent visitors recommend visiting just to behold the building's architecture. As one TripAdvisor user puts it, "There is modern art around but I couldn't tell of its quality. I found it ok, but the star is the building."
The Marrakech Museum is open every day from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and admission is 30 MAD (roughly $3.50 USD) per person, although most visitors choose to purchase the 60 MAD (about $7 USD) combo ticket that allows entry to the museum as well as the Ali Ben Youssef Medersa and the neighboring Koubba Almoravid. You can learn more by visiting the Marrakech Museum's website (Note: All of the information is in French).
