Take time and wander the museum's galleries, spread over the fondouk's three floors and sunny inner courtyard. Exhibits are organized thematically and change every two to three months. Next to each photo is an information plaque. Notice the year each photo was taken and marvel at the similarities between then and now --Morocco still celebrates many of the same cultural traditions as fifty, eighty or even one hundred years ago. Near the entrance of each gallery you'll find another plaque, only in French, that gives insight into the exhibit. Non-French speakers can ask questions of the friendly and knowledgeable staff who are well versed in what is on display.
On the third floor visitors will find a media lounge showing films about the Berber people of the High Atlas. The documentaries, shot by Daniel Chicult in 1957, are the first color movies filmed in the High Atlas. The films, called "Landscapes and Faces of the High Atlas", play on continuous loop and offer a rich and colorful view of Berber daily life and festivities.
Finally, head up to the terrace on the top floor. Here you will find an amazing view of the entire medina and a small cafe offering teas, coffees, juices and light lunch options. Relax, enjoy the view and a new perspective on Moroccan life. Must be the highest roof terrace in the old city of Marrakesh.
