Le Musée Berbère

Reclining gracefully in the creative bosom of the Majorelle Garden, under the very roof that once served as the painting studio of Jacques Majorelle, lies the artistic gem known as "Le Musée Berbère". This institution of cultural preservation, brought to life in 2011, blossoms under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohamed VI.

A Panorama of Berber Brilliance

Walking into the Berber Museum is akin to diving headfirst into a sea of resplendent creativity. From the Rif to the Sahara, the museum brims with the artistic bounty of the Berber people, North Africa's most ancient culture. Over 600 objects, collected painstakingly by Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent, whisper tales of the rich and diverse heritage of a culture that continues to pulse vibrantly in the veins of the land.

In the Hands of the Berber

The Berber Museum takes great pride in showcasing the skill and ingenuity the Berber people possess. Everyday objects and ceremonial artefacts stand testament to their material and immaterial expertise. The Berbers' ornaments, however, steal the show. Symbolising the tribal identity and the social standing of the woman donning them, these pieces of adornment are a sight to behold.

Berber Identity Clothed in Beauty

The museum houses a resplendent array of costumes, which breathe life into the Berber identity. The traditional attire, accessories and adornments, each narrate a unique story of the Berber people and their cultural heritage. A section of the museum is exclusively dedicated to costumes.

The Majorelle Garden - An Oasis of Inspiration

In the year of 1919, French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) found himself enchanted by Marrakech, then under French protectorate. The subsequent years saw him purchasing a palm grove bordering that of Marrakech and building the Villa Bousafsaf, a splendid architectural masterpiece that resonated with classical Moroccan vibes. The property was later renamed Villa Oasis by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, its new owners from 1980. Majorelle, a fervent lover of botany, built a splendid garden around his villa, teeming with lush vegetation and hundreds of nesting birds, providing a slice of paradise in the heart of Marrakech.
