Make the effort to find this place because it is well worth it. The photos are wonderful. And there is a rooftop terrace with great views over the old city as well as a good value meal.

Fascinating collection of photos in a lovely building, with a wonderful panorama from the roof cafe.

If you set your camera to monochrome you could take pictures just like these but probably better. Most shots are of market scenes and local people and the essence of these hasn't really changed. Roof top cafe with a view of1000s of satelite dishes and old TV aeriels. Oversold attraction.

A beautiful little museum containing some great photos of Marrakech and Morocco from times long past. The museum is housed in a very pretty riad and has a roof top café which is well worth stopping at too. Once you’ve paid for admission, keep hold of your ticket as you can use it to regain entry again at no extra fee, either to take another look around the gallery or to visit the café. The owner was very friendly, spoke English and was happy to give a brief explanation of some of the prints on show. If you’re interested in photography or the history of history of Marrakesh, I’d definitely recommend a visit.
