Lovely way to lose a few hours, browsing at some historical and more recent photographs as well as a simple lunch on their roof terrace. Nice menu and very relaxed.

Tucked into one of the smaller alleyways behind the souks, this small museum in a converted riyad has a collection of 19th and early 20th century black and white photographs that show life as it was. I found the pictures of Jewish and Berber women in traditional garb to be of particular interest, as these populations have largely disappeared.

The rooftop terrace cafe has a decent panoramic view of the city.

Fascinating. Apart from the sheer beauty of the images, the photographs gave us a great history of the region.

The terrace café on the roof top is well worth a visit- inexpensive tagine /cous cous and mint tea. with a fabulous view of the city.

Very well distributed and categorized. Great portraits of Morocco's past. Very nice art exhibit if you seriously enjoy photography.
