Dar Si Said, Marrakesh: 8 reviews and 19 photos
Originally the town house of Sidi Said, this building now contains the Museum of Moroccan Arts.
Quite an interesting Museum, not just for its exhibits, but also for the architecture and decoration of the house. The highly decorative cedar wood ceiling is stunning-my photo below doesn't do it justice I'm afraid
The museum is on 3 stories and in typical Islamic style, rooms open onto an inner courtyard and garden, through ornate doors that are good examples of High and Anti Atlas craftsmanship.
The gardens are quite pleasant too, with pathways set out in symetrical patterns leading to a covered fountain. -see my photos below.
Open 0900 -11.45 14.30 -17.45 Mon, Wed, Thur and W/ends.
