I live in Marrakech and really wish we had a similar museum here. I spent two lovely hours discovering contemporary and Modern Moroccan art, very interesting. Unfortunately the info is all in French and Arabic, no English

A beautiful building, fab cafe & friendly staff. It has a permanent and a temporary collection, neither of which are out of this world but both definitely worth a look - an hour should cover it easily, followed by a coffee or salad in the very laid back cafe. :-)

I thought the collection was wonderful with many great artists. Unfortunately I do not speak or read French or Arabic so it was not as enjoyable as I would have liked. The basement exhibits weren't to my taste.

The museum is a spectacular example of Moroccan architecture and the permanent collection takes one on a tour of the successive periods of modern art in Morocco. I love the painting of my favourite artist Chaiba. The visiting collections are diverse and include some of the work's greatest artists in addition to contemporary Moroccan artists who are making an impression... More

This museum only recently opened. I'm not sure if they have a permanent collection but what was exhibited was worthwhile. Cafe was lovely but if you order cappuccino you get hot chocolate…which was still wonderful. No gift shop yet...

Handsome new building. Current exhibition is 4 star: Post Colonial modern art, the quality of which is astounding. This show ends 12/31/16. We were there on a Monday morning---sadly the only visitors but great for viewing.

This museum is close to the hotel where I was staying so I went because I was looking for something to do on a weekend. I was very pleasantly surprised with the collection of art they've assembled. Sure you aren't going to find any French masterpieces here but they've put together a nice collection of works.

The Museum of Modern Art is beautiful. Modern art in Morocco appears to be a fairly recent and limited endeavor, however. The collection is not large, but it is well cared for, and the museum can be easily seen in less than an hour. Well worth if it you're an art enthusiast, but not a "must see" for tourists.

We visited the museum. I personally don't care for modern art but the were several exhibited pieces I thought were worth seeing. Unfortunately there is no signage or anything in English. The cost was $4 per person. The museum building itself is modern & pretty.
