Hard to find as the local boys keep removing the signs so they can charge to guide you there, this beautifully restored house is full of a collection of photographs of Morocco from 1870-1960 ish. Portraits of locals, views and a repeating film of Berber life filmed in 1956, the gallery also has a delightful cafe on the roof. Run by Frenchman Patrick Menack from Brittany it is a testament to how a good visitor attraction can be created.

This is a lovely Gallery and the introduction to the photographs was a good touch. The rooftop cafe is great and this was probably my favourite 'tourist attraction' in Marrakech.

This museum is not easy to find but is well worth the effort. It's a lovely little building, full of character. The photography on display is stunning and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. The roof terrace is great for a reasonably priced drink/snack and offers great views over Marrakech. The gift shop offers beautiful photo prints for sale. Highly recommended!
