Great collection of old photographs documenting what life was like in Morocco before modernization. Focus is on Berber culture. Well worth checking out. Not big so you can see it all in 30-45 minutes.

Nice place, with an average collection of photos from morroco and marrakech. The house desserves a visit, but keep your expectations low. A great project though!

If, like me, you are interested in portraits, these are wonderful examples of Moroccan people. I wish I could be as good as these photographers. The roof terrace has snack bar with views over the medina.
