“Step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

A great little museum showing images taken in Morocco from the early days of photography. Worth a visit for photography fans - the portraits and landscapes are stunning - as well as anyone who wants to see what the medina used to look like. It also serves as a peaceful haven from the madness of the medina - stop and get your breath with a mint tea or lunch on the rooftop terrace.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We loved this place...the photos have a real depth of understanding to our visit to Marrakesh and we loved relaxing with a cold drink at the roof top cafe afterwards.

“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.
