Maison De La Photographie - Review
Ask any visitor of Maison de La Photographie about their experience at this eclectic museum, they would most probably call it a haven in the hustle bustle of Marrakech. Masion de La Photographie is so much more than that; it is a glimpse of the old, ensnaring Marrakech , photographs that document the evolution of this mesmerizing place. Patrick Menach and Hamid Mergani have contributed close to 4500 photos that date back to 1870s and speak of a charming, more laid back Marrakech.
Do pop in at the beautiful terrace café that offers refreshing mint tea and breathtaking views.

Maison De La Photographie, Marrakesh Reviews
Very nice little museum, especially if you consider the price. The architecture here is brilliant, with a real '1001 nights' vibe. The terrace is beautiful, overlooking the city of Marrakech with a cold drink is an experience to cherish.
I really enjoyed this gallery of photography. I’m a photographer myself and found the exhibits really original. The gallery is very well priced. They also have good quality archive prints available. We enjoyed and tea on the rooftop terrace with and amazing very of the Madina.
Very nice museum with great (old) photos showing morrocco in the past people, some architecture and a little bit about nature. Yet its more about portrees and people. The one star minus is because they have a terminal for card payment and the stickers on the door point out payment facility yet you cannot pay your 40 mad entrace fee with your card. Otherwise great place look for the signs to find it or trust google maps some people might tell you its close (happened in our case) nice but not spectacular view from the terrace with relaxing possibility.
Really good museum with information in multiple languages and a very interesting documentary on Berber people. Also a very nice terrace serving a few good and reasonably priced dishes.
Some great photos of the past but strangely only through a European's eyes. Feels quite colonial and orientalist in it's approach. Nevertheless worth half an hour of browsing.
