A must for anyone interested in photography and/or Marrakech. A lot of effort has clearly been expended in the layout of this fine gallery, which includes a terrace café to quench your thirst after viewing the wonderful photographs.

I had read the reviews and visited the gallery. Definitely a wise choice. The show is excellent and the restaurant upstairs amazing. The only reason I didn't give five stars was because I would have liked to have seen some contemporary work!

A moving and breathtaking collection. Not a large exhibition space so not an overtaxing visit. Hence can be grouped with other activities. Do not miss it...

We enjoyed the historical aspect to the photos, although many were of Tangier. It was good to see a traditional house complete with beautifully tiled floors. The roof terrace is a good place for a quiet drink with a great view over the rooftops. Western style toilet was a bonus.

When you have exhausted the Medina and its souks head for the Museum de la Photographie. Keep trying until you find it. Definitely worth the effort to see some fabulous black and white photos of real Arabian life.

This museum in a traditional house (which in itself is worth visiting), is a fabulous visit whether you are a photographer or love history. Well worth a visit

Having read about this place and being a very keen photographer I was keen to visit this place whilst staying in Marrakech. However, my exception were dashed and I came away somewhat disappointed. I think a lot more could be done to make this a most excellent visitor attraction.

The collection of black and white photos was really interesting and they were well laid out. A new museum is apparently being constructed so many more items will eventually be on display. The rooftop restaurant was small with excellent and quite reasonably priced food. The service was superb.

This exhibition is glorious, rich and textured and inspiring. The photographic portraiture is wonderful and evokes a bygone era of exploration. Lots to see, excellent film clips and photos to buy if you are so inclined.
