We had not planned to visit, but passed by and thought, why not? It was very much worth the time, the old photos of old Morocco were in many cases so similar of the Morocco of today.

I enjoyed browsing through old but beautiful photographs. It was fascinating to see faces, streets, people and made me connect with the Marrakech of the past. I was surprised at my reaction but I enjoyed it and thought it was time well spent.

Beautiful photography, lovingly displayed and presented. Gorgeous building and a great rooftop terrace, where we had a light and delicious lunch with drinks. Best place for culture in Marrakech!

The pictures are about how was Marroco in the past!! some places you will be surprise they haven´t changed but you need to go to the atlas and the desert to see that!! is worth going and it has a great restaurant in the terrace for 10 us a set menu.

An exposition of great historical photographies from the time of the presence of the French in Morocco. You'll be surprised how much didn't change since those times.

The museum itself can be viewed in an hour. On a hot day the terrace at the top is a lovely, cool place to rest your legs and sip mint tea.

The rooftop terrace offered great views and the museum was presented well and offered a nice space to wander around. It didn't take long but the ticket enabled a return trip during the visit to Marrakech which was welcomed.

So worth a visit, an excellent selection and history of Moroccan photography within a beautiful light filled building. Wind you way to the top for a good view and a cold fresh lemon and mint to cool you off.
