We walked to visit this and found it closed until 1st May 2014 which was too late for us. No hint on the webpage that it was closed. Poor indeed.

Nice building and set up of photos. Nice photos. Pity there was more of historical background such as French colonial impact.

Variety of photographs - many different portraits as well as interesting town and country scenes . Good examples of original printing techniques. However, although housed in a beautiful old riad-style house, this means the whole exhibition is spread over several floors with step steps and no lift - a great limitation for those with mobility difficulties.

A group of six of us visited this museum and all really enjoyed it. Fascinating photographs with enough information, well displayed in a lovely old building. Very interesting video (original film) of life in rural Morocco in the 1950s. The cafe on the roof was really good too - the best freshly squeezed lemon we had in Morocco and very... More

Not a huge museum, but well laid out and with great photographic prints of Moroccans from the 19th Century. A haven of calm in a beautiful building. Well worth seeing.

A haven from the souk hustle, with gorgeous old photographs starting from the 1880's. The roof top cafe is perfect for a cold drink or lunch.
