This museum is set in a majestic old Riad close to the vegetable market and souks in the Ben Salah area. The first time I visited here was on my very first trip to Marrakech in September 2017. The entrance fee is about 30-50dh. There...More
First of all we came to drink a mint tea and went straight up to the rooftop cafe skipping the museum altogether.
The stunning surprise after entering from the street through the frightening doorway which looked more like a descent into the torture chambers of...More
As an artist who came partly to research and see these boucherouite rugs, this is an absolute gem - though to be honest the shops in Marrakech are equally full of them!
A small intimate museum, with the added bonus of discovering the "Zindekh" pieces...More
Tucked away in the medina a short walk to the East of the main souk, this lovely riad houses a fine and interesting collection of rag rugs made by Berber women. Some of the rugs become poignant when you discover that the material used by...More
Small and select rotating exhibitions of textiles/rugs from around Morocco, with special attention to Berner women's skills and crafts. One gem after another in a small and unpretentious converted riad enclosing a sedate but well-tiled courtyard, around which the carved woodwork is exceptional.
Found this museum after reading about it on TripAdvisor. Glad we went. We were the only people there and it's like wandering around someone's house. The rugs are beautiful and the stories behind them are very interesting and inspiring. The owner wasn't there when we...More

All the info you need is on the website - why does everyone post guesses!!! - but its 40 dirhams to get in and you can reuse your ticket to go back as many times as you want. Closed Sundays. Of course you can take your child - the building was a B&B Riad and the rooms are still bedrooms and bathrooms - just with rugs displayed - nothing for children to do but they would be welcome and the roof is gorgeous for a mint tea and the house is absolutely marvellous to visit. Second only to Majorelle Gardens I would say. (Ridiculous to organise a tour - you can walk the whole medina easily and no need to have any guide - hassles only a problem if you let them - dont signpost yourself with a guide).
We just got back after a month there staying right in the middle of medina - explore and have fun!

I checked the riad /museum postcard I have, and Dih 40 entrance, open 0900 - 1800. Closed August! I do recommend a visit ... it's really worth seeing how the French owner has redecorated / remodelled the Riad. It's quite wonderful. If he's available, I am sure he'll happily explain everything to to you. Also, you could happily spend an hour escaping the crowds on the streets by having a tea/ drink (or even an eat) on the rooftop ... relaxing and planning the rest of the day! It's just so different to the rest of the museums in the Medina. Enjoy!
