A beautiful house with a unique collection of photos with local relevance. Most prints are printed scans, I don't know the reason for this, and it only has relevance for true photography nerds. Cafe with a brilliant view on the roof.
This excellent museum documents photographs of Marrakech and wider Morocco in the early 1900s through the next 50 years. There are some brilliant photos showing what life was like as well as a documentary on Berber life. A reasonably priced restaurant is on the rooftop with a great view over Marrakech.
It helps if you are interested in photography, but it's a charming museum and a nice way to idle away a couple of hours away from the chaos of the Medina. The top floor café has a fantastic view across the city to the Atlas mountains. Almost worth the entrance fee for that alone.
I was hesitant to come here. It's a bit off the beaten path, and a little difficult to get to. You have to really work to push away all of the street hustlers trying to tell you to go a different direction, or that something is "closed" etc. But when you make it, WOW. The photography collection here is something that is pretty mind blowing - seeing Morocco so many years ago, and then realizing how things haven't changed all that much. But then you make your way to the rooftop, and it's an oasis from the bustle of the Medina. Really cheap drinks, and amazing views of the city. Plus, if you keep your ticket, you can come back whenever, which we did just for the rooftop patio!
Excellent photography exhibition in a magnificent building. The terrace offers an amazing view on the city rooftops as well as some nice food and drinks as a bonus. Not too pricey, highly recommended.
