“Lovely service, beautiful photographs, and a great cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The exhibition's fascinating, and the staff are more than happy to show you around; they're good-humoured, relaxed, and aren't looking for a tip. Head upstairs afterwards for a limited menu, but a lovely meal with a view of the city.

“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.
