“Really good gallery with a cool cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The exhibition that was showing when we were there was really interesting with some fantastic and fascinating pictures. The gallery itself is a nice building and it has a cool café on the roof from which you can look over the city and enjoy a mint tea and pastries.

“A lovely little museum/gallery - if you can find it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

This is a great diversion for an hour or two and gives an insight into Marrakech past. It's fascinating to see how much (and in some respects how little) has changed. You can even buy prints from the shop.

Great escape from the chaos outside. Gives you a good insight into life in Morocco in the past. Amazing photographs and a nice terrace for great views of the city.
