We really enjoyed the amazing photographs from the European pioneers and got a deeper insight into the Moroccan history and culture. There is a beautiful roof terrace with a great view too.

The museum was very interesting. Having walked around the city for two days then looking at these incredible photos made you realise how the city has changed over the years.

Nice museum, with old photos from Morocco. Best of all was the little cafe on the roof. Beautiful view over Atlas mountains. Well worth the entrance fee of 40 dirhams
