Photography museum in Marrakech

Located just north of Marrakech’s central square only a five minute walk away from Riad Cinnamon is one of the cities popular attractions: la Maison de la Photographie.

Established 3 years ago, the photography museum set its aims to founding a cataloged archive of Moroccan history in which the memories of these times gone past could be brought back to life for the general public.

Exhibiting a comprehensive selection of 5000 original original photographs covering from the 1870’s up to the 1950’s, the Maison de la Photographie provides a unique and fascinating field of insight into the lives of those who inhabited Morocco during this time.

Once you’ve enjoyed the remarkable collections the museum has to offer, you can round off your afternoon by enjoying a pot of traditional Moroccan mint tea on top of the roof terrace pictured below. As well as showcasing astounding sights inside the museum, the Maison de la Photographie also has a higher roof terrace than most Riad’s in the surrounding area which offers astonishing views of Marrakech Medina and the Atlas Mountains.
