Have a look at the photos. Decide for yourselves is this is one tiny room and a couple of exhibits. In fact the building is large enough to house a synagogue as well as many interesting and varied exhibits. What does "too far" mean? A museum is where it is. Indeed, it's an easy tram ride to Oasis station, then... More

Though there were Jews in Morocco for many centuries, living in many places and integrated with the population, most have now left, mainly to Israel. Casablanca is home to the remaining Moroccan Jews. This excellent museum, a former orphanage opened fairly recently, gives a taste of what life must have been like previously. Lots of wonderful photos as well as... More

The museum is situated quite a way out. There is no public transport so a taxi is needed. There is a minimal admission fee 5DHR . A reconstructed synagogue is inside and other religious objects, One can also read about the community. If time is limited there are synagogues in Casablance which are well worth a visit. Any cab driver... More

I do recommend this place if you're visiting Casa. It was just nice to know the history of the Jewish community in Morocco, its influence and the recent exodus to Israel. The marks of the Jewish tradition is everywhere in Morocco and it was interesting to see how both communities (islamic and jewish) lived in peace and together for centuries.... More

Tucked inside a residential neighbourhood, this little gem hosts a piece of Moroccan history. Artefacts from private collectors showcasing the history on Judaism in Morocco. Jewellery, clothing, furniture etc... all well displayed and taken care off. It's small but substantial.

We visited the museum today. It is off the beaten path in a residential neighborhood. We found the exhibits to be very educational, in that we knew nothing of Moroccan Judaism . Most of the items on display come from nineteenth and early to mid twentieth century synagogues that unfortunately are no longer active. There are several wonderful bimahs as... More

The museum is small, far from the center, and the guide, which had been recommended in Lonely Planet, was nowhere to be found. The photos and memorabilia were worth seeing and appreciating. I found some of the photos of early Jewish Moroccan women particularly fascinating. I was sad to be reminded how such a vibrant element of Moroccan history is... More

As several people have stated, it's more a collection of interesting artifacts, photos and things; it's a collection of stuff (albeit interesting stuff) - in a semi-hidden location - that really isn't tied together in a cogent way. Individual sections or pieces of the "museum" are interesting, but aren't telling a story. The biggest omission, and it would have made... More
