Musee du Marrakech Central Court

The walk from our riad to the Musee du Marrakech should have taken around 15 minutes. However, as we got a little lost it took significantly longer to reach. (bit of advice, if you do get lost, ask a stall holder rather than a local passer-by  otherwise you will be expected to pay for directions on most occasions).

I’m so glad we kept going though as it was one of the highlights of the trip for me.

Entering into the central courtyard I may have said WOW, out loud and rather loudly.  The whole courtyard is gorgeous, with an impressive chandelier made of rosewood.

The building was originally a 19th century palace and the former hammam’s are now used as an unusual exhibition space for artwork. I saw some wonderful pieces.  Including this awesome picture, which I fell in love with and wanted to buy, until I realised I had gotten my currency calculation completely wrong and the picture was £1,200 rather than £120.  Which meant it had to stay on the wall.

On our way out, we stopped for a drink at the cafe in the courtyard outside the museum and then made our way to the Medersa Ben Youssef (which is included in the price of your museum ticket)
