Founded by a painter and developed by a fashion designer, Jardin Majorelle is a 4.8 hectare (12 acre) site in which nature and art intertwine. A striking blue villa sits at the heart of the botanical garden, filled with numerous water features and over 300 plant species from around the world. Developed over a period of 40 years by the painter Jacques Majorelle, and bought in 1980 by designer Yves Saint-Laurent, the garden includes a museum of Islamic art.

All in all, I don't think it's worth the visit at all.
Absolutely beautiful. Worth a visit. Definitely suggest going early to beat the crowds. Such a serene place is better enjoyed with less people around. We also paid the 30 dirham more to enter the Berber museum and I'm glad we did. This small, but well-executed, museum was a nice way to still get a historical background of Morocco without spending hours in a large museum. (Couldn't take photos in the museum)
I don’t really get what the fuss is about. If you like cacti then you’ll love. It’s a nice enough garden to wander in for 30 minutes... and you will spend 30 minutes lining up to get an over priced ticket. I felt better when I read that proceeds go to a charity that supports cultural development
