Tel: 212 24 44 18 93's insider take:

At the heart of the Medina, the Musée de Marrakesh is a conversion of an opulent, early-19th-century house formerly belonging to a local grandee. Exhibits rotate but concentrate on Moroccan and Islamic arts and crafts such as court ceramics and tribal textiles. The star attraction is the building itself, particularly the polychromatic-tiled central court. There's a pleasant courtyard café and a very good bookshop. Plus, the museum is naturally cool inside—a good place to escape from the heat, since AC is a rarity in Marrakesh and worth the price of admission alone during the hot summer months.

Open daily 9 am to 6:30 pm.
