This was a quaint little museum with some fantastic artefacts on display. It was also free which is always a bonus. A must see!
Well worth a visit to see and find out about Moroccan arts and crafts. But the highlight is the magnificent courtyard chandelier. A nice break from the hubbub of Marrakech. The museum also has a nice little cafe to put your feet up in the shade :)
The museum is next to the Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa in the northern medina. It's 50 dirhams to enter (just over £4) but if you can buy a combined ticket for both attractions for 60 dirhams.

Look out, it's not easy to get here. Although the architecture is beautiful, it is rather dead and empty on the inside, though there are some interesting objects worth looking at. I went with a friend who doesn't speak French, and had to basically translate everything for him, since there are barely no English posters or explanations.
The tiling, plaster work and decor is beautiful, however the 'contemporary' art display is very poor - there is better art to be seen in the souks. The artifacts aren't all that old (on the most part) or interesting, and again there is no information in English (for those that cant read french) so take a guide book that offers... More
