Overview of Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech museum

Facade of the Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech museum

In 1980, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berger bought the Majorelle Garden to save it from the hotel complex project, a museum and an exhibition area of YVES SAINT LAURENT with an area of more than 4,000 m2 were built next to it

"For many years, I have found an inexhaustible source of inspiration in the Majorelle Garden and often dreamed of its unique colors" – Yves Saint Laurent

The exposition of the Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech museum

The museum is divided into two parts: the first is dedicated to the life and career of Yves Saint Laurent, and the second to his designs. Visitors can explore the museum's permanent collection, which includes more than 5,000 items of clothing, accessories and sketches. The museum also has a library, a bookstore, a boutique and a cafe with a terrace.

Library of the Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech museum

Visitors can also get acquainted with the temporary exhibitions of the museum, which feature the works of modern fashion designers.

Architecture

The facade of the Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech museum

The building was built according to the project of Studio KO, which was inspired by the duality of curves and straight lines, the alternation of thin lines and clear sections. From the outside, the building looks like a collection of cubes, allegorically dressed in brick lace, with a pattern resembling weft fabrics. The inner part, like the lining of the clothes, is radically different: velvety, smooth and luminous.

Working hours

The museum is open daily from 10:00 to 18:00, except Wednesday

Ticket prices

When buying a ticket only to the Yves Saint Laurent Museum - 130 MAD for adults and 65 MAD for children from 10 to 18 years old. Children under 10 years old can take the course for free.

We recommend visiting the Majorelle Garden and the Pierre Berger Berber Museum at once, in this case it is advantageous to purchase a general ticket for 300 MAD (children from 10 to 18 years old - 150 MAD)
