Overview of Marrakech Museum

In 1997, the building was purchased by the Omar Benjelloun Foundation in order to restore and open the Marrakech Museum in part of the palace. Initially, the palace was the residence of the Minister of War of Sultan Mulai Abdelaziz - Mehdi al-Mnebhi, and in the 1960s it housed a school for girls.

The museum's expositions

Some of the most interesting places of the palace are the courtyard with a magnificent lamp and the rooms around the traditional courtyard. These rooms contain a museum collection consisting mainly of weapons, ceramics and other traditional Moroccan objects.
