Another must-see in the city of Marrakech. A history of photography and many rooms of wall-lined photographs of Morocco in the early days of photography. The cafe on the roof terrace (you need to pay the museum's entrance in order to visit it) gives you amazing views across the rooftops of the city. It is reasonably priced and a good... More

Interesting photos in a pretty building. If you want lunch on the rooftop go early, they ran out of food when we visited.

Very small but perfectly formed photography museum. it was a great surprise to discover this very interesting museum in the middle of the Marrakech souk. The museum offers a nice collection of photographs from the 19th and 20th century allowing you to travel through time and give an interesting inside to Morocco's history. Also the building is really charming, adding... More

This selection of high quality photography was a real surprise. Excellent place to wonder through different times of Moroccan cultures and customs. In between you can enjoy hot beverages on the roof top :)

Amazing photos, the entrance price is very good and you can come back several times if you want to. This house/riad is gorgeous with a very nice view of Marrakech on the rooftop.
