“Fascinating photos and great roof terrace for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The photos was very interesting, showing Morocco since the early 1900s. But the best bit was the panoramic roof terrace, views right over marrakech over to the Atlas mountains.

The view from the cafe at the top is nice as was the little cafe we stopped by for a rest. But im not sure why this attraction is so highly rated.

“A must go if you like anything remotely related to humanity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Nice photos that you simply can't miss if you want a nice intimate rapport with Morocco. The nice thing is they sell posters and photos developed from original films so that you can take with you a piece of Morocco

“Nice photos, but way too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The photos were very nice, not doubt about that, but for an entrance fee of 40 dirham (If I remember correctly) I expect more information in English and more photos as well.
