“Nice little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

The museum is a nice tribute to Morroco's past. The exhibits (pictures and videos) were interesting, although I had expected the visit to last longer and the museum to be bigger based on the descriptions in travel guides. They have a good selection of old prints at the boutique.

“Morocco history via photos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This private collection is true gem! Do not miss a visit; it provides a magnificant visual account of Morocco from 1870 - 1950. The curation - installation of the works are superb. Exhibits change every 3 months. There are also videos and a fabulous roof top deck for viewing Marrakech. I look forward to the hanging/enjoying the image I brought home. Patti B.

“Interesing photos, not bad value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Like many of the museums in marrakech, there isn't a great deal to be said.
It is fairly small, with some interesting prints, and good views from the terrace.
Entrance fee is fairly cheap (40 dh from memory) so not bad value at all
