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.

  • 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.
