Located just on Place Ben Youssef, just across from the Ali Ben Youssef Mosque, is the Mnebhi Palace which is home to the Musee de Marrakech. The 19th century palace has a lovely inner courtyard, with bubbling fountains and seating nooks, making it a relaxing escape from the chaos of the nearby souqs.

The museum has exhibitions on such things as Moroccan calligraphy, jewellery, ceramics and music, which are shown in the main rooms and courtyard. Art exhibitions are shown in the palace's former kitchens and bath houses.

In the entrance courtyard, just off Place Ben Youssef, you will find a small café serving up drinks and sandwiches, where we had a tasty lunch. There is also a small souvenir shop selling some interesting books.

Open from 9am-6.30pm daily. Entrance was 30 dirham when we visited in Jan 2007.
