“OK if you like old B&W photos of Moroccan locals”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

The museum is bit tricky to get to, having to brave the outlying souks, and is a bit limited. It does have a handy cafe for lunch, though. All the photos seem to be stills taken of native Moroccans, sporting tradional dress. OK if that's your interest, but otherwise not rivetting.

“lovely, tranquil spot with a great roof terrace for lunch”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We really enjoyed the images of old Marrakech. However be careful not to follow 'friendly'' directions from people on teh street back to the main square. We did follow these tips, ended up in a lonely street and were robbed...so you've been warned!

“Great little stop”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

This is a nice little gallery of large old photographs of Marrakech and the medina. Definitely worth your time to explore, and we enjoyed a soft drink on the roof terrasse afterward.

“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.
