The museum is in the middle of the souk area in the medina, so it's easy to miss the relatively modest entrance. However, once you're inside, it's a whole different world! You see a beautiful riad with lots of original artefacts, silence and more! We...More

If you want a little break from the chaos that is Marrakech I suggest you pop into the Heritage museum. A small museum but they have some facinating items and it's all clearly explained. Finish your visit with a peppermint tea on the roof terrace...More

The Heritage Museum is very beautiful. We enjoyed looking around. It's small and not over crowded. The terrace is nice for fresh tea. Leaves are pulled off plants in front of you. Make sure to watch your head heading down the stairs.

This museum was small but it was one of my favorites because it had information in English, something most of the others didn’t have. I would really recommend it

This family-run museum is an absolute delight, and a bargain for 30Dh, whatever the other reviews say. We had a warm welcome on entering and enjoyed a peaceful atmosphere to look around - in fact, we were the only customers at the time, a welcome...More
