The photos lack some variety, as they are all monochrome and from 1910-1920, and more or less similar. The rooftop terrace has a great view and he best chicken tagine we tried (50dh).

A small museum but some fantastic pictures.

We had a lovely lunch on the roof Terrace.

You can use your ticket over again

Nice to see all the different photos of all ancient Marrakech.
Something different than all the other stuff you visit.

Very nice overview on the Medina from on top of the building

TIP: if you buy a ticket you have access for several days and you can also have breakfast there.

Suburb collection of early photographs cyclically displayed. Prints of the images are sold to support the Museum which is in a lovely Riad with a small roof cafe. The docents are very knowedgeable and helpful and can direct you to other worthy museums. Small charge, ticket is also good for the Berber Museum in a Berber village near the city which was the best Museum of Berber culture we found. Don't miss this museum.
