“Outstanding collection of photographs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

An amazing place with beautiful photographs. You really get a sense of the importance of this city and what it was like 100 years ago. Keep your admission ticket...as long as you have proof of admission you can re-visit the museum again, anytime you like. There is a rooftop terrace where you can buy sodas, coffee, tea, and snacks. The view from up there is spectacular! Be aware: in an attempt to mislead you, you will be confronted in the streets by young people who will tell you the museum is closed. Smile, shake your head, and continue on. They are paid by the leather tanners to direct you to their shops, in the hopes that you'll purchase goods from them.

“Interesting Moroccan History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Why this place is not on the tourist maps who knows. Found it eventually with the help of a young local for 20 dirham. Small amount of photos over 3 floors but very interesting. Great little cafe on the terrace serving a limited set menu but great tea. Enjoyable and peaceful.

“Somewhere cooling to go”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Didn't find this particularly exciting but enabled us to get out of the heat. Didn't think it was worth the hike though
