This museum is worth a visit. It is housed in a Riad and gives an insight into the Berber culture. Follow the guided route around the house, it doesn't take long but note resting nevertheless.

This museum could use an infustion of cash. The collection is extensive but poorly displayed--certainly not compared with the Berber Museum of Ives St. Laurent.
