The visit was short but the exhibits were interesting and the director of the museum was accessible for questions about the Jewish Community in Morocco. Many very interesting artefacts from old and modern times in this building that also hosted a display of Moroccan modern art.

Although located further out from the city center, the Museum of Moroccan Judaism is one place you should visit for its educational value. At the time of my visit there was an exposition "Exils" which featured works of invited artists with the theme focusing on people living in exile and refugees and internally displaced people. Aside form this, the museum... More

The museum is full of history, including the building itself. We particularly enjoyed the minimum synagogues and the way the museum is designed!

The museum is very well done. We learned a lot about how Morocco lives, and has always lived, in peace between it's religions and ethnic groups. Be aware that most of the signage is only in French, not English, but we did not find that outweighed the total experience of the museum.

This being the only Jewish museum in the Arab world it is fascinating and tells a story not often or readily available. Though small it is well worth visiting to see and understand how these cultures worked and meshed together.

I had the pleasure of having a personal tour of this place with four other colleagues. Never knew the history of Jewish people in Morocco until my visit.

This is an interesting but small museum about Moroccan Jewish culture. We arrived after closing as the website said it was open until 6 but it was actually 5. FYI- they also raised the price to 50 dirham (negligible but important to know). The owner was really nice and let us in for a few minutes even though it was... More

We were taken to this museum by a dear Moroccan Muslim friend who had told us that he had visited the museum in anticipation of us coming to visit him. We were thrilled with the many things that were taken from synagogues around Morocco that had closed. There were also many pictures that showed the Moroccan Jewish experience.
