“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Some great old photos in a beautiful setting. Worth a quick view and great to add in after seeing Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa.

“Interesting photos and great rooftop cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

The price to get in to this exhibition (which can be hard to find so study a map and don't listen to the locals telling you it's the other way!) is about 50 dms (about £3.78) and you can use that ticket to get in again as many times as you like).

Really nice way to look at the history and the rooftop cafe is to be recommended- it is crazy cheap and they do lovely food, although there isn't a huge selection. Be careful about going there at really hot points of the day as not all of the tables are in shade so if it is busy you might be out in the boiling hot sun trying to eat!

“"Very good place"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The museum is right behind the Medersa Ben Youssef. A wonderful collection of prints through the ages of Moroccan photography history. One of the highest terraces in the medina with views in all the directions, the view may well be worth the money alone.
