The Atlas Film Studio Museum in Ouarzazate

Ouarzazate is the door to the Sahara, the world’s longest desert. And believe it or not, the desert here is backdropped by snow-capped Atlas Mountains – even in summer. It’s only here where you can see that extreme scenery of nature, totally different from each other but they blend well as one landscape that’s made to perfection. Perhaps, you’ve seen theseĀ landscapes in Hollywood movies before – but maybe, you thought, “Ah, they’re just cinematic effects, or computer-generated images.” You could be wrong. Or you could be right.

Movies like Gladiator, The Passion of Christ, Prince of Persia, Alexander, Cleopatra, Jesus of Nazareth, Babel, Lawrence of Arabia and many more were shot at Atlas Film Studios, just outside Ouarzazate. Aside from a huge studio, they also have the Atlas Film Studio Museum where some rooms here were used in the movies. Inside, you can find chandeliers, tall chairs, carpets, benches, stages tools and many more – which most of them can be touched or seen up close. The columns are grand and the interiors are dramatically well-lit. During my visit, I was the only one going around the museum and it felt like I was time traveling at that moment.

These are the things and rooms I saw inside the film museum.
