A beautiful collection of photographs in a lovely converted funduk. I saw someone else's entry in the guest book which made me smile - "Great photos! Found it by accident - where the hell are we?" The Photography Museum is certainly an integral part of exploring the Medina!

Absolutely entrancing historic photos well displayed in a building that's interesting on its own. The museum is hard to find, but that's true of just about everything in the medina.

An informative and culturally appropriate exhibit with lots of information in most languages including a quaint and cheap cafe on the roof. At 40dh to visit there's no reason not to go.

The photos in the museum allow you to view the last hundred or so years in Morocco. The exhibition space is clean and well laid out. Its a nice destination to take a break from the hustle of the medina and souks within. there is a very nice reasonably priced restaurant on the roof.

We visited late morning and that seemed like a good quiet time to go. Very interesting and inspirational. Drinks on the roof terrace very good after too. They were too busy to try out lunch!

Really good insights into Morocco and how it's changed. Worth the effort to go and free wifi too. Some of the photos of people are haunting.

This museum is situated in a nicely refurbished traditional Riad. It showcases large photoprints from the last century, cca 1900-1950. If you are interested in photography and history of Moroccan people, definitely go. Unlimited access with one ticket (MAD 40) is a nice touch, so is the roof terrace with a view overlooking the buildings around, and good spot for... More

The Photography Museum of Marrakech was a very pleasant surprise. The historic photographs were excellent and gave a flavor of Marrakech from the 1880's - 1950's. It was a pleasant way to learn the history of Marrakech and also realize that many things have not changed to this day.

I never expected I'd enjoy a photography museum as much as I did. This museum is located in the midst of many winding alleys so good luck finding it but if you do you won't regret it. At any one time they display 150 photographs which seemed to date from around 1880 to 1940 and they were all hauntingly beautiful,... More
