Nice museum
Nov 2020
This museum showed how a lot of the carpets are made and a history in the clothes. There is a very beautiful garden in the middle and the architecture of this museum was amazing! Inside there was a video playing showing the process that the women do in order to make these carpets.

Worth the trouble it takes to find it!
Feb 2020
First, please note that the contents of the museum may be different to your guide book - it has changed to focus more on Moroccan carpets and the like.
But it is well worth a visit, with a range of artifacts which help you understand and appreciate this amazing country. The courtyard is a wonderful haven of peace, and the decor of the building is worth the admission fee in itself. It was not crowded when we visited; I suspect that's because it's hard to find! But compared to the crowds which can spoil the Bahia, that's a plus point.
If you need help finding the Dar Si Said, try this which worked for us: Face the entrance to the Bahia Palace (easy to find), and turn left (north) up the Rue Riad Zitoun El Jedid. The second alley on the right should still have a sign for the Dar Si Said - head up there and a left turn will take you there. The entrance is then easily found at a corner which turns left again and quickly right to lead you back to Zitoun El Jedid, and towards the Jemaa El Fna if you wish. Good luck!

Super Building and Really Interesting Art
Feb 2020
This tranquil place is less visited than others in Marrakech because it is not well signposted. It is a stunning building inside with a beautiful courtyard with the usual fountains and tiling. However the art work by French painters is well worth the visit. Some interesting display cabinets with silver work and inticate wooden boxes. Didn't eat in the rooftop cafe but it looked clean and cared for.

We visited this museum after the Bahia palace. Actually we enjoyed this old beautiful building more. Stunning place with less visitors.

Great buildings, well worth a visit
Feb 2020 • Couples
This is near to and a cousin of the Bahia Palace. It's similar, but a bit smaller. You get to see some upstairs rooms here though, and they are really impressive. Also a couple of tranquil courtyards. 70Dh to get in. Look out for signs to it painted on walls in the surrounding alleyways.

The Orientalist Museum, Marrakesh
Feb 2019
This is a rather new museum located in a 1600's merchant's home not far from the Marrakesh Museum or Dar M'Nebhi. Ask for directions at the Marrakesh museum and there are also signs. It's a real gem in that it's 2 floors plus comfortable roof top snack bar with lovely views of the city. There are paintings by lesser known French artists who traveled here in the 1800's. And there are interesting objects like silver daggers and wooden boxes that held kohl. Have lunch nearby at the Le Trou Au Mur.

Carpets only
Jan 2020 • Friends
You can take pictures without flash light, but no videography, it is not worth to visit. If you have free time, I think you should visit Bahia Palace.

Great rug displays and architecture
Oct 2019
This museum has varied off and on over the years; I used to take my tour groups but often it was closed so I dropped it. It is now renovated with a focus on Moroccan rugs, with displays showing area of origin and beautiful examples, and English text. (I write about, collect and sell rugs, so it's hard to impress me.) In addition, it is located in a former palace and the architecture and courtyard gardens are beautiful. As another reviewer said, choose this instead of the Bahia Palace, since this has rugs in addition to the architecture.

Fantastic building - not to be missed
Jan 2020 • Couples
Lovely building and some very interesting things to see inside. The building itself is worth the visit - also very good value in comparison to many other places in Marrakech that have recently hiked the prices up (only 30dhs per person). It’s tucked away so probably more difficult to find but well worth it.

Stunning Interior and interesting Carpet exhibits
Dec 2019
If you have a choice between Bahia Palace and here, choose here! I think the interior was more ornate and beautiful than the palace, as well as having all the carpet exhibits from the ages. The garden is beautiful too.
