Peaceful, clean museum set over 3 floors in a colonial style property. B&W pictures, with a small selection available at reception. One ticket allows repeat visits. Pleasant rooftop cafe serving drinks and a limited selection of meals.

Not a lot to look at but some beauties in here. Go, as you'll be bored and tired of Marrakesh after a day and this offers a nice little diversion.
