The Museum of Music

The Museum of Music, opened in 2014 and situated in a Saadian house built in the 16th and 17th centuries, presents different music from Morocco.

The reception apartment of the museum is a jewel of Arab-Andalusian architecture in Marrakech. Several rooms of the house are assigned to temporary and permanent exhibitions.

The belvedere terrace offers an exceptional view of the Medina and the Atlas Mountains, and also a restaurant. For three years now, we have been organising traditional music evenings at the Mouassine Museum, which have been a great success.
We wanted to respond to a deep demand from the public and to highlight Morocco's musical vocation by creating a Music Museum in Mouassine.

The Museum of Music houses the Mellakh Foundation, which arose out of the meeting of painter Abdelhay Mellakh with Patrick Manac'h and Hamid Mergani. The Mellakh family had been living in this same house for two centuries.

The Museum of Music also offers temporary exhibitions in the old matmura (the building's original storage cellar).
