We (a group of 7) stopped here as part of our Intrepid tour itinerary when on the go from Erg Chebbi to Todra Gorge & all of us were pleasantly surprised (as noted by all previous reviewers). The quickest someone went through was 30 minutes with most of us needing an hour. Order your lunch before you wander through &... More

Walking this well organized and nicelly presented museum is a must when you are staying at the El Khorbat Ksar. For as little as 20dh per person, you will have an overall understanding of the life of marocan people, origins, actual way of living. If you travel without taking time to discover, you are only displacing your body. Perfect lenght... More

Outstanding displays with information plaques in English [and several languages]capture the Berber life, complete with explanations for the building materials that house all of this terrific museum. Don't be deceived by the fact that it is small: plan at least an hour and find the time well spent. This museum is only 30 miles from Tineghir and worth looking for!... More

Don't be fooled by the size. They displays are so well done and contain so much information, one can easily spend at least two hours wandering through the museum. It's obvious that it is a true labor of love. Being incorporated within the ksar gives it a great deal of authenticity. Learned things about Berber culture and Morocco in this... More

We really enjoyed this place. We were not expecting such an interesting experience. The museum isn't huge, but it's restored very well, and it was really cool to go into the kasbah further and realize that lots of people still actually live there. There were some interesting items on display, and there was also a lovely terrace cafe attached, surrounded... More

This berber museum is unfortunately very easy to miss, so you have to drive slowly and keep your eyes open for the sign. The museum houses many artefacts relating to berber history throughout the ages and provides a fascinating insight into life many years ago. Artefacts are clearly labelled and there's also the museum guide who is on hand to... More

Very interesting and excellently curated museum in a well maintained ksar. Information plaques in 8 languages and only 20 dirhams for entry! Also a very nice hotel and restaurant.

This was a stop on our trip from Merzouga to Tineghir with Morocco Explored. I think our driver was surprised by how much time we spent going through the many rooms, but we are the kind of museum goers who read all the labels and take the time to understand how the artifacts were used. The objects are displayed well... More

We discovered this little gem as we travelled from Todra Gorge to Merzouga and it is well worth taking the time to visit. The ksar, which houses the museum and auberge, is still very much a lived-in collection of houses and courtyards - if you have visited other kasbahs such as Ait Ben Haddou this will really make it spring...
