Was interesting to see the old pictures of how Morocco was before. Also a good documentary showing about the berber life in the 1950s. The highlight was maybe the roof top cafe with excellent views over the city. Would have given it 4,5 stars if...More

We loved this photography museum. It was set up really nicely and the photos were amazing. They also sell prints and postcards at the shop. The cafe looked nice but was crowded when we got there, so we skipped it.

I loved this place. nice collection from photographers who have lived or stayed for a time in Morroco. Clean, organised spot. When you finish the visit, go up to the rooftop and have a traditional mint tea admiring the city view. It's relaxing and inspiring!
