4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Small place but well presented.. intersting photo histories, a good video of historic Morocco footage, all in French though, as it was by a French traveller. No subs.

“Black and white!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Beautifully laid out.....photos from across mainly the 19th and 20th centuries....not all of Morocco, Tunisa gets a look in...definitely worth a visit... If you go to the top up the spiral staircase you will also get great views of the city...

“Lovely week at marrakech”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is a good place to visit, to see how was Morocco in the old days. It does not focus only in Marrakech so the experience is good.
Also when you buy the ticket you can return how many times you want to revisit. :)

“Rooftop respite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

The owner is very kind. I stopped in twoyears ago and bought a few postcards and he let me wander up to the rooftop terrace for free. This time I stopped by with my 18-year-old son and offered to pay two admissions and he only charged us for one (40 direm). The old photographs are interesting to look at and the rooftop terrace is a wonderfully peaceful place to have a drink (Nonalcoholic of course)

“Cool photos but I expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I'm not sure how this place is so top rated. Yes, it's neat to see photos from Morocco's past, but the museum is actually fairly small and my wife and I didn't think it was worth it..
