“Interesting Moroccan History”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Why this place is not on the tourist maps who knows. Found it eventually with the help of a young local for 20 dirham. Small amount of photos over 3 floors but very interesting. Great little cafe on the terrace serving a limited set menu but great tea. Enjoyable and peaceful.

“Somewhere cooling to go”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Didn't find this particularly exciting but enabled us to get out of the heat. Didn't think it was worth the hike though

“a sense of history and a great meal”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We had read about this museum on Trip Advisor before going to Marrakech and weren't disappointed. Fascinating photos of Marrakech and other places in Morocco. It is always interesting to be reminded that what we are seeing didn't always look like it does now. The meal on the terrace was one of the best we had in Marrakech. Looking out at the High Atlas and hearing the call to prayer from the many mosques made for a magical moment.
