“Glimpse into Morocco in days gone by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Lovely small museum of black and white photographs with prints to buy too. Very helpful staff, a cafe on the roof with good views over the souks, and a place to watch the first film documentary made about the country in 1957.

A little treat, and respite from the crazy streets.

Nice pics and roof terrace but nothing amazing. We had to pay 6euros and the room was relatively small

“Recommend visiting first”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

I would definitely not miss this photography exhibition as it provides a window into the Morocco of the past. The photos of people and everyday scenes help take you back in time when you wander the alleys.

The food at the cafe on the roof is also a nice escape from the hustle and bustle.
