Museum Dar Jamaii

Dar Jamaii Museum

The ‘Jamaï Palace’ has been home to the Musée d’Art Marocain since 1920. It was built in 1882, and was once the home of Abou Abdellah Jamaï, minister to Sultan Moulay Al Hassan I (1873-1879). Come and see this sumptuous home and the treasures that are on display inside – such as beautiful collections of jewellery, ceramics, wooden sculpture, traditional clothing – or magnificent carpets from the Middle Atlas, and antique furniture.

Take the time as well to admire the ancient terracotta, carved plaster and painted wood, and don’t forget the Andalusian garden. Before you go, take a look at the apartments in which the Jamaï family lived. This will give you a better understanding of the luxury of a house belonging to the high bourgeoisie of Meknes at the end of the 19th century.
