"The inner courtyard of Dar Mnebhi" Marrakech Museum Tip by sachara

Marrakech Museum, Marrakesh: 23 reviews and 61 photos

The Marrakech Museum is housed in the Dar Mnebhi, a nicily restored traditional Moorish palace from the 19th century. It was originally the house of Mehdi Mnebhi, a defence minister in those days.

The palace has a wonderful inner courtyard, the central and most striking part of the palace. In the courtyard are three marble bassins with fountains. Only the building with its abundance of the zellij tiles and stuccowork makes it allready worth to visit the museum.

Address: Place Ben Youssef
Directions: 500m north of the Djemaa el-Fna, following the Rue Souq Smarrine and Rue Souq el-Kebir straight to the north.

      There is so much to see in Marrakech. I made a lot of more pics more recently, but found not the time yet to update this page.
