Musée de Marrakesh
Musée de Marrakesh Review
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 lampshade that resembles a UFO descending. This is a perfect place to relax while enjoying Moroccan architecture and gentle strains of guitar 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 toilets are spotless and worth the admission price if you find yourself far from your hotel.
