“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Go there and support their private gallery and their organization. They are privately collecting old, historic (beautiful) photographs without government support. The rooftop view is worth some time as well, great views.

“Find it and love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I'll admit it was hard to find, but that's what travelling is for, wandering and discovering!

My husband and I really enjoyed it here, such a quiet escape from the bustling city of Marrakech. I felt like we walked out with a better understanding of Moroccan life. The owner and the people that work at the Maison de la Photographie are great and really care about what they do.

Afterwards we had a delicious lunch and mint tea on the rooftop patio. It was such a lovely way to spend an afternoon in Marrakech.

Oh and we bought a beautiful print that's proudly hanging in our home :)

“very nice place but be careful on your way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

this place is amazing for people who loves photography.
we got kind of lost walking towards there and locals tried to help us?? but lead us to wrong way on purpose.
it was kind of dangerous.
just becareful and make sure you know which ways to go because when we went there, there was not much people around to go to this place.

“Worth the effort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Great little museum with a delightful cafe on the roof. Yes it's a bit tricky to find and ignore all the touts telling you it's closed to 3pm - it's not! They just want to take you to the nearby tannery. Once located its a great place to step back in time and spend an hour or so admiring the collection
