This museum is in a beautiful building and contains fascinating material very well-displayed. It's easy to find (well-signed), staff were very friendly and the cafe on the roof terrace is a great place from which to look over Marrakech and beyond to the High Atlas mountains.

I love this museum, the photos are stunning and evocative. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
The rooftop terrace offered a superb 360° view of the city; with snacks and refreshments.
This is a very interesting place in the Medina.

We stumbled upon the gallery whilst it was pooring with rain, having got completely lost. It was a gem to find - great exhibition & good place to buy some nice prints. Ticket costs 40dirham but you can re-visit during your stay in Marrakech so we went back on a sunnier day to have tea / food on the terrace - great view from here - good for photography!
