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.

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.

We were a group of reform Jews and we ended our tour of Morocco with a visit to the Museum. Our group was not very impressed. Many of the exhibits do not have English texts. We spend around 30 minutes which is sufficient. I would not go out of my the Museum. It has significance because it is the only... 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 details.
