Maison De La Photographie, Marrakesh Reviews
Although we've been several times in Marrakech, it's the first time we visit this lovely little museum! It's well hidden yet really easy to find when you look for it. It has more to offer than great pictures for photography lovers; it's a piece of history told in these walls. When your visit is done, don't miss the couscous on the rooftop terrace restaurant! It's a very good restaurant with a beautiful view!
The museum terrace restaurant is nice, start from the top midday with some tea and lunch and make your way down the three floors. Good collection ! Photos donated by Nicholas Mueller(from Hungary)’s daughter was interesting, so is the documentary on Trekking in the early period seeing barbares in the Atlas mountains. I was most surprised by the varied genetic phenotypes in their faces. Some intense stares from those faces coming back at you. I loved it!
A small collection of beautiful photography. A place where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has a very nice rooftop terrace overlooking the whole city, where we ate one of the tastiest tagines. The entrance fee allows you to return as many times as you want, so we returned again just for the food.
The rooftop terrace is a big plus. Spend around 45 minutes to look att pictures and read about it. Then enjoy a glass of lemon-mint juice on the terrace. Save your ticket to come back another day.
Beautiful pictures and a beautiful terrasse as well. Definitely worth the 40 MAD! They also have really nice postcards for 5MAD!
