“Favourite Place in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2015 NEW

This museum is fantastic. I lovely little space including photos from the last 150 years in Marrakech. The photos are impressive and show the early years in photograpy. You can see what has changed in Marrakech over the years, but more strikingly how much has not changed. One of the best parts of the place though is the roof cafe with some of the best views across Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains towering over it.

“Nice restaurant on the top - limited space though.”

I can take or leave the photos but they were interesting enough to look at. The roof terrace and the restaurant were very nice here.

Seeing these early black and white photos and films was like being invited into a romantic world of the Berber tribes.

“Museum of Photography”

Loved this museum which was really difficult to find! Particularly interested in the photos of life in Morocco in years gone past. Lovely little terrace too.
