“linger on the top floor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

One of the few things that I regularly enjoy in Marrakech. It's often not very crowded and very relaxing on the roof, where drinks are served. They've done a great job- a shame they don;t produce any books and don't rotate the exhibitions enough...

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is certainly worth the visit. The museum is interesting and very informative. The small fee for a ticket allowed you re-entry which was worth while as the food in the terrace was lovely.

“A little sanctuary in the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We went to look at the museum and though the building was lovely, the photographs did not really do it for me and overall I was not too enraptured by the place

“Some great photos in a stunning building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We came here for lunch as well as to see the photos. It turned out we were a bit early for food but we waited with cool drinks on the lovely roof terrace and enjoyed the amazing views. The food was tasty and reasonably priced. Afterwards we walked around the museum - our favourite photos were of the souks in the 1930s because of the stunning diffused light. Possibly the best thing of all was the building, which we ended up photographing from every angle. We were glad we came.
