“Relaxing break after the chaos of the Souks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

This is a very pleasant little museum. Nothing particularly sensational to see, but some interesting photos illustrating the history of Morocco over the last 150 years. Quiet and peaceful after the turmoil of the souks and a lovely rooftop café with good views of the city.

“Exhibition so-so, food decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The photo exhibition is ok, small and not outstanding (but the thought counts, and there are not many other interesting art-initiatives to support). Restaurant on roof was good (although serious problems with delivery of two pastillas) and not least -reasonably priced .

“Magic house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

It is a must see ! You will learn about the history of Moroccan photography in a lovely setting. The only thing I thought it was a shame, that one could not buy some books.

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Nice place to spend a few hours if you love Photography, are enchanted by Morocco and fancy some down town in Marrakech. Shame the cafe had run out of veggie food by the time we arrived.
