  • A beautiful snapshot of the daily lives of the Moroccan tribes. The exhibition spans over 3 levels and at the end you are being rewarded by a refreshing cafe oasis at the top of the terrace. The cafe serves drinks and food at reasonable prices. The entrance fee for the exhibition is only 50 mad, and it is worth every penny.
  • It's a nice museum and perhaps the best part is the documentary movie being played on Berbers. It also has nice decorations and terrace. But given the price and size of the place and the other possibilities in Marrakech I would not prioritize this museum.
  • Well curated museum. Had a very interesting documentary section. Nice rooftop and cafe.
  • Small, but interesting museum in a beautiful building with a cosy rooftop bar. Well worth the entry price if you have a nose for some photography, some culture or just want to enjoy a panoramic view of Marrakesh.
  • Pleasantly surprised by this place. I've only just started getting into photography and thought this w as s very interesting. Photos from the late 1800s and early 1900s were especially fascinating. They have a wonderful terrace cafe upstairs but it wasn't cheap!
