"Museum of Islamic Art" Majorelle Gardens Tip by mafi_moya

Majorelle Gardens, Marrakesh: 47 reviews and 142 photos

 
 

The beautiful blue house in the middle of the Majorelle Gardens is now home to the Museum of Islamic Art. So after you've been blissfully relaxed in the wonderful gardens you can educate yourself as well without hardly even moving! There are the usual exhibits - carpets, jewellery, pottery, paintings and so on, many stretching back hundreds of years. Aside from the displays, even the house is stunning, its bright blue and yellow colour scheme and ornate windows setting it apart from any other house in Marrakech.

The museum and gardens are shut for lunch for a couple of hours (12-2 I think). No photos are allowed inside the museum.
