“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Very good museum full of excellent photographs picturing the berber culture. And a little cafe on the rooftop is a must if only for a moroccan mint tea.

“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Go there and support their private gallery and their organization. They are privately collecting old, historic (beautiful) photographs without government support. The rooftop view is worth some time as well, great views.
