We really enjoyed this museum. Very well done, perfect setting. Really gives you a feel for how Marrakech used to look. The bones of the old city are still the same so it is easy to see where the pictures are from. Mostly black and...More

This small museum is worth a visit. It is a wonderful old building with an equally wonderful collection of Moroccan photographs displayed on clean white walls. A small roof terrace serves coffee, tea, soft-drinks and snacks and has a great roof top view. The small...More

A fascinating tour of Moroccan culture with some beautiful and arresting images. Another bonus is the lovely café on the roof terrace with far-reaching views and delicious home-cooked tagines and couscous where you can lunch very well for not much!

A cross section evoking early 20th century Morocco. Clearly displayed in a handsome building. (Be aware that some kids will tell you, "It's closed," and try to direct you somewhere else)
