Loved looking at the old photographs but the best bit was the great food we ate on the terrace and the magnificent view of the city with the Atlas Mountains in the background. Will never forget that view as long as I live.Could have stayed...More

Hard to find, but everywhere in Marrakech is hard to find. Don't let friendly locals show you, it will cost you

great pictures from the 1870s to the 1950s! They offer a unique view on Morocco at the time. Some pictures are absolutely breathtaking and the rooftop café is great (and has free wi-fi, a rare enough commodity in Marrakech). Like in a lot of museums...More

Fantastic. Wonderful photographs. Great rooftop terrace and food. The collection is a really important view of the development of the country stretching from the late 19 C and should help to guide future development of the country.

Lovely photographs, but the best bit is the roof terrace with a panoramic view over the rooftops of Marrakech to the Atlas Mountains. There is a little café there where you can get a drink or lunch. Food was good, and the view is stunning.

A great photographic history of Morocco set in a well restored Riad. Definately worth the visit. The photos tell their own stories. There is also a great view from the roof of Marrakech.

After reading about it here I thought I'd be in for a much better experience than it really was. Anyway, it's worth it, but no big deal if you miss it. The terrace is cool and you can have something to drink up there.

Well displayed and peaceful environment. Lovely roof top cafe and reasonably priced. We visited twice as you could visit as often as you liked with just the one ticket.

This small museum, tucked away in the Medina of Marrakech, offers a wonderful photographic insight into the country as a whole, as well as having some of the best city views and food on the roof of the terrace/cafe. It's good value too, as you...More
