Dar Si Said Museum Marrakech.

Medina Carpets Marrakech

A few twisty turny alleyways after the Bahia palace, just past the brightly coloured carpets , the next historic site to visit in Marrakech  is the Dar Si Said Museum. This museum is dedicated to the arts and crafts both past and present of Marrakech and it’s surrounding areas.

Set around a pretty courtyard garden this museum celebrates room by room each of the different traditional crafts that have been handed down from generation to generation.Woodwork, leather work,metalwork, jewellery ceramics and my particular favorite the skills of caftan making all set in fabulous palatial Moorish architecture.

Again the price of admissions is  10dhs and a personalised guided tour is possiable the price of this is negotiable. The museum opens from 10am to 12.30pm and 3pm to sunset.

you will find the museum at the Mellah end of Riad Zitoun Jedid

just follow the signs.
