Amazing photos and fabulous lunch on the roof terrace. Near to the Medersa Ben Youssef so easy to combine the two.

“Excellent trip to the Photography museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We really enjoyed our trip here. The building was lovely and the photographs were well displayed, with interesting commentary. The rooftop terrace cafe provides unparalleled views over Marrakech and the mountains.

A really interesting visit, with a big plus that you can return for free if you retain your ticket.

Highly recommended.

“Intersting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Gives an insight into the history and culture of Morooco, entrance fee a bit too much for what you get to see, but a worthwhile visit.

“well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Lovely little museum. The photos of Berber life were especially evocative. The terrace cafe has excellent food and one of the best views of Marrakech to be had.

“An oasis of culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This beautiful and interesting little museum is one of the highlights of Marrakech - don't miss it, it's worth every dirham! The ticket seller is an extremely friendly chap and a mine of information on everything in Marrakech. Very nice that you can come back as many times as you want with same ticket!
