One of the most spectacular exhibits in this museum is the building it's housed in: the Dar Menebhi Palace, which has been carefully restored to its 19th Century glory of intricate tile work and carvings decorating courtyards, fountains and halls lined with columns.

As far as smaller pieces go the museum displays modern and traditional Moroccan art and historic books, coins and pottery from Berber, Arab, Jewish and Moroccan cultures.
