Maison de la Photographie in the medina of Marrakech is definitely worth the visit - here some snapshots of old Marrakech.

These photos are so beautiful and special. There are not many old photos from the very old days of Morocco. I have written before about the museum ”Maison de la photography” in Marrakech. If you are maybe one day in Marrakech you have to go. The owner, a French man, has collected a treasure of unique photos. I love old pictures, but because there are so less of these kind of photos, they are extra special.
Entrance tickets are very reasonable, 40 dirhams, last time I was there and you can use them more than once.
Maison de la Photographie must have the highest roof terrace in Marrakech with a really fantastic view over the medina and the Atlas mountains in the distance. Well worth a visit.
