This museum is a reflection of Moroccan religious tolerance and diversity and it's continuous efforts to celebrate its Moroccan Jewish community even despite all the global developments and pressures! That's what makes morocco like no other country...

Guided visit is highlu recommendable but you can also enjoy the visit looking at photos and the other exposition. Museum is in a calm quarter but far from center of city. It is not far from Oasis station where you can eat and drink something.

It has been almost two years since my last visit. I was not going to review the museum again....but then I read the Tripadvisor comments written over that time and wanted to respond. The two major complaints seem to be 1. lack of English lables, and 2. lack of a time line. Like the Berber Museum in Marrakech and the... More

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
