Any advice on what time to visit and how long roughly I may have to wait for the line?
For anyone else wanting the web address: http://jardinmajorelle.com/ang/
I would advise you to appear early so as to avoid the tour parties who appear in large number, particularly if their are several groups arriving at the same time. I prefer to turn up about 3pm when most tour groups are just leaving, it tends to be a lot quieter after this although don’t leave it too late as a) it may start to get dark and b) it will be too close to closing anyway.
The garden opens at 8am and closes at 4:30/5pm depending on the time of year.
Saw some reviews saying that the queue is long. Is it possible to purchase the tickets in advance? But I can’t see this option in their website.
We amble along shady lanes, in the midst of trees and exotic plants of dreamy origin; we walk past refreshing, burbling streams and pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers; we hear wafting through the air, laden with sugared fragrance, the rustling of leaves and the chirping of numerous birds who come here to take refuge; we stop, and the path turns unexpectedly, revealing a building with Moorish charm, with a hint of Art Deco, painted in astonishingly vibrant primary colours, glowing with an intense blue the artist perceived in the Atlas Mountains. We are soothed and enchanted by the harmony of this luxuriant and vivid imagery, which issues a delicate summons to the senses, offering us a calming retreat near, and yet so far from the bustling city, sheltered from time by high earthen walls.
shimmin2robertson , where do you get your museum ticket from? I always thought you had to buy them both from the main ticket office before entering the garden and that you needed a garden ticket to be able to go to the museum.
Sorry, I’m still confused because you have to go through the garden to get to the museum. When I’ve been to the museum I’ve always been asked for my ticket, never offered one for sale.
ps – It’s getting quite expensive to enter now at 70Dh to see the gardens oplus 30Dh to enter the museum which is why I limit myself to one visits when staying in Marrakech.
Thank you. I hadn’t thought about that one. I don’t think it was open when I was there last. I was thinking of the wonderful Berber museum within the garden that does require a separate ticket which you can buy at the main entrance to the garden.
Sorry, I meant the new Yves st. Laurent museum beside the garden 😳
Dans ses allées ombragées, on y déambule au milieu d’arbres et de plantes exotiques dont l’origine fait rêver, on y longe des chemins d’eau au murmure rafraîchissant et des bassins emplis de nénuphars et de lotus ; on y entend dans l’air aux fragrances ici et là sucrées le bruissement des feuilles et le pépiement des nombreux oiseaux venus s’y refugier, on s’y arrête, au détour d’un chemin, devant un bâtiment au charme mauresque ou au style Art Déco, étonnamment peint de couleurs primaires très vives dominées par le bleu intense vu dans l’Atlas par l’artiste. On y est apaisé et ensorcelé par l’harmonie de ce tableau luxuriant et vivant où les sens sont délicatement sollicités pour offrir une promenade magique, hors de la ville animée pourtant si proche, dans l’enceinte protégée par les hauts murs de terre, hors du temps.
If you go to the museum first you can buy tickets for the garden at the same time then don’t have to queue to enter. Queues for the museum are smaller.

Reply to: Can I buy tickets for Jardin Majorelle in advance?
The Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech is one of the most visited sites in Morocco. It took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years of passion and dedication to create this enchanting garden in the heart of the “Ochre City”.
Le Jardin Majorelle à Marrakech est l’un des endroits les plus visités du Maroc. Il a fallu quarante ans au peintre français Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) pour créer, avec passion, ce lieu enchanteur, aujourd’hui au cœur de la ville rouge.
My tactic has always been to go early. Even at 8.00 am, however, there will be a small queue.
