We spent an hour or so on our last day visiting the interesting little museum. The pictures and the history of Morocco are captured brilliantly and well displayed. There is a great little rooftop cafe to take a breather from the madness of Marrakesh, but...More

Interesting pictures but felt there was no real story behind much of it. The roof terrace was lovely to have a drink on and the ticket allows re-entry.

I'm not a big photography fan but the photos here are spectacular. Particularly those taken on glass rather than a normal negative. This combined with its excellent roof top cafe makes it a must do attraction while in Marrakesh.

Historic photos from 1930’s and terrace cafe. Interesting if you want to see photos of how Marrakesh has changed.

Loved this small museum featuring both black and white photography and some color photos.. The photographs were riveting and evocative. Seeing photos from the 40's and 50's gave you a good idea of the history of Morocco. There is a lovely cafe on the terrace.

Historic photos of desert people are displayed in this small museum. Some are striking. Many of these are available for sale. Knowing its limited scope now, I would have put this into my itinerary after checking out more important attractions.

Slightly hard to find your way around but very good content when you find it. The colour films taken in 1957 were riveting.

This is really interesting with some fascinating photos of various places in Morocco. These are mainly from the 50's and early which helps understand what the country was like....particularly the souks in Marrakech which don't seem to have changed much
