“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We were lucky enough to meet the owner of this small but interesting museum. We recommend a visit as you can enjoy photographs and films of Morocco, both old and recent. Lunch on the roof was fun, friendly and delicious.

“Great little museum with fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Do not listen to anyone in the medina - they will tell you it's closed and try to send you to the tanneries.

The restaurant on the top of the building has a fantasic view and delicious food as long as you're up for tagine.

“Definitely Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

An interesting collection of photographs around a cute little house. Also a cheap rooftop terrace café that offers pretty good views over the city. Always worth mentioning that they have a good toilet too!

Entry is 40 dirhams (less than £3) but once you've got your ticket you can return as many times as you like, though once will probably be enough.

“OK (with reservations)”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Couldn't work out the percentage but a lot of the images here are printed from scans of original (presumably smaller) photographs. At least one is copied from a book.
Not that there's anything wrong with that but it's something to be aware of.
As other reviewers have said the restaurant is good. Lovely food and good views.
The downside is it is difficult to find and you will probably have a taxi driver get near then deliver you into the hands of a young lad who will insist on walking you there.
A taxi from the square will be about 15MAD the 'guide' will probably try and sting for about 200MAD. Don't pay that. You might have to pay 100MAD.
The entrance fee at present is 40MAD. (£2.84)
