The museum no longer exists as "art de vivre", it is now just a perfume museum. It was interesting but not what we were hoping for. Worth it if you have extra time but I would not prioritize it.

This museum was one of the highlights of our trip. It's found down a quaint winding street (but what isn't in Marrakech). The two women proprietors were welcoming and pleasant. For $40, I got to make my own perfume with the help of one of...More

If I went back to Marrakech, I know I would never be able to find this museum, because Marrakech is the most confusing city I have ever visited in my entire life. We stumbled upon this museum by complete accident, but it was fantastic. Beautiful...More

Visited this museum in my final few hours in Marrakech. Left me a last imprint of the charms of Marrakech and a lot more about what I could discover about Morroco.

Beautifully restored old riad with a calm, quiet, great atrium where you can relax or have a tea at the rooftop, worth the 4$ entrance. The rooms all contain themed exhibits around moroccan culture.

Not worth seeking out, if passing by it might be a nice diversion. Too expensive for what's offered, though. Lovely setting in a riad with nice exhibits, but not many of them.

Like others, we stumbled on this little museum accidentally, having got a bit lost in the streets, en route to another attraction. However, this proved to be an interesting diversion, although it doesn't take long to complete the tour. Sadly, there are few description labels...More

I lost my way in the souks and I ended up in this mysterious museum not listed in the lonely planet. Great surprise! The museum itself is peaceful&quiet, they have a small but very educative collection about everyday's life in Marroco. I really recommend this...More
