Beautiful small museum which focuses on the early days of photography in Morocco. A must if you like photography! The building is lovely too.

Good glimpse into the past, nice terrace although the cafe is not the best lunch deal anymore. Since the Lonely planet quoted a chicken lemon tagine for 50MAD, they now only have a veggie tagine for 50 - good size though. The menu of the day was 100MAD, nice view. 40MAD entrance seemed a bit high for the amount of... More

The gallery and cafe were highly recommended by one of our guidebooks, so we decided to visit on our last afternoon in Marrakech. Unfortunately so did everyone else! You must pay admission just to go to the rooftop cafe. It was extremely crowded and the wait was at least an hour, so we left. I can't therefore comment on the... More

Had the pleasure of visiting this museum. The photographs are beautiful and well worth the nominal charge. But even more lovely is one of the owners, Patrick. He was a joy to talk to and told us about some of the other projects he's working on (like a charity and a school!) The rooftop cafe also offers beautiful views.

Loved this little white-washed museum with just 2 floors of black and white photos taken of Morocco/Marrakech's pas by some notable photographers. A lot of wonderful portraits of men and woman - Berbers, Touregs etc, mainly from last century but looking as if those people are still around. On the roof terrace, there is a little cafe with an excellent... More

Its definitely worth to go see! Great photos with impressive messages fascinate the visitor, taken by real artists long before Photoshop. Don't miss the wonderful view from the terasse on the roof.
