The main reason to come to this small but perfectly formed museum next door to the Ali ben Youssef Medersa is not the exhibitions, but rather the stunning central atrium, a tiled courtyard containing a huge lamp shade that resembles a UFO descending. Set within the restored 19th-century Menebhi Palace, this is a perfect place to relax while enjoying Moroccan architecture and gentle music piped through speakers. The temporary exhibitions in the courtyard are often of beautiful
artifacts and paintings (some for sale), but they're poorly displayed and lack English translations. The museum also has a good bookstore and a café. The restrooms are spotless and worth the admission price if you find yourself far from your hotel.
