We'd hoped for history. We got local art. It was our first stop on our visit to Marrakech and finding it by wandering the streets of the Souk proved to be a quest. But, once we found it, it was underwhelming. It's 50DH to get...More

Beautiful architectural aspects and cultural artifacts laid out in an old hammam. Some modern art. We were guided here on a tour we set up with a local. Inexpensive and worthwhile.

Worth a visit just for the beautiful central courtyard. There are small collections of local artefacts plus modern art exhibitions.

Very nice building and museum but the saloons for paintings were dark. For exhibitions we used our mobile torch to see the paintings...

It's a nice enough building to look around, and putting an art gallery in the old Hamman is certainly interesting, but the exhibits are nothing special sadly.
