I just loved all the old photos with all the old techniques. We even bought a photo of a beautiful tribal girl and now we hope to win the Photo of the Month. A beautiful museum.

Beautiful art that shows what Morocco was like. In many cases it still looks much the same. Well worth a visit and there are photos to buy as well.
