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...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...More

The restoration work is well chronicled. A few interesting artifacts. However, given the rich judaism culture and heritage of Morocco, the place can do a lot more.

Has a few exhibits but not as much. It seems like a place that opened. Does not go into the long history of the Jews in Morocco. Has very little mention of the Berber Jews, mostly focuses on Sephardic Jews. Would be better with more...More

Very good museum to tell you about the history of the Jewish community in Morocco. The Museum is based in a house with beautiful gardens. It used to be an orphanage but then was doanted as the site for the museum

Must admit, I had a very limited understanding of Jewish ceremony. This museum was quite interesting and informative. On the grounds of a former orphanage, this museum is beautifully maintained and details some key historical bits and pieces as well as ceremonial pieces and museum...More

The collection of artifacts documenting the culture and material life of Moroccan Jews is important for our understanding of the past and it's shape on the present. The artifacts for the most part are well preserved. However, I didn't gain as much insight as I...More

When I was there, I was lucky enough to have the museum director who gave me a great tour herself as many things were only written in French and I only speak Arabic, English & Spanish. Maybe you can e-mail or call the museum... More
