After all the rave reviews I was underwhelmed. The photos were interesting but we were done in 15 minutes and the terrace was tiny and over crowded. Not somewhere I would revisit.

Some great photos, some dating from around 1910 but most mid century. Very well displayed. There were a couple of lovely haunting shots in the main hall.

Fairly easy to find from the Ben Youssef (ask for directions, though). Brilliant assemblage of historical photos of people and places. It's amazing to see how much things have changed - and ,yet, stayed the same in the last 150 years. Worth the 10dh...

A little hard to find within the souk but well worth the effort. Beautiful old house with photos from 1800s to the 1950s with a roof terrace for a drink afterwards. Well worth a visit.
