Really nice well maintained museum in the Medina. Entry was inexpensive, but bear in mind that they only accept cash (at least that's what they told us!). The photos are displayed over the multiple floors of the riad, with a nice shaded courtyard on the...More

Really enjoyed this museum. Fascinating history of the country, and in particular the Berber tribespeople, revealed through photos and a documentary video. Worth grabbing a mint tea on the roof terrace after, but note that there isn’t table service. We waited for quite a while...More

A small but smartly curated museum dedicated to photography in Morocco. Be sure to take the stairs to the roof for the splendid view to enjoy coffee or tea in the shade.

A lot of interesting photos. Some can be bought, but at an unbelievably high price. There is a cafe on the roof, but nothing special and too small for the number of visitors. Despite this in my point of view, worth seeing.

Small but well curated photo museum in the Medina, with some amazing shots of Marrakesh going back over one hundred years. Helpful staff, nice rooftop terrace for a view

You can do organised trips to Berber Villages but I would definitely book this either through your hotel or your travel agent. On the way to the museum we were hassled constantly by locals who tried to get us to follow... More
