Important Museum

It's the only Jewish Museum in the Arab world. It's an important site and there needs to be more like it with more outreach programs.

This museum is installed in a prettily remodelled suburban villa. You can reach it by cab or by walking from Oasis station - in either case, take a merked map. It has rather few visitors and no knowledgeable staff on duty while I was there, so call ahead. It shows photos of all the surviving Moroccan synagogues, and has a... More

It was in a very good area in Casablanca, well taken care of and the person responsible for it was kind enough to show me around and explain many interesting information about Judaism, Morocco and Amazigh. I have learnt a lot on this visit. The only thing was that you can't take photos inside and most of the captions under... More

Located in the suburb of Oasis (pronounced Wasis) this little gem can be found, hosted in a former villa which was an orphanage. Our taxi driver could not find it for the life of him - and no one in the area could find it either. We spent about 20 minutes driving around lost until someone led the taxi there!... More

This museum is said to be the only Jewish museum in a country with a Muslim government. (Note: there are Jewish museums in Turkey, but that government is still secular at this point). The history of Jews in Morocco is not widely known, though they have been there since the time of the Roman Empire. Many Jews, along with Moors,... More

We suffered till we go to the museum, nobody seems to know it. I guess it's the only place where one can read and relive all the jewish-arab history. The place is well organized and neat. The only con tho is that two of the staff tried to take more money. Overall it's worth visiting :)

The museum is awe inspiring in terms of exhibiting and explaining Sephardic Judaism in an Arab country. Not only the Judaica was interesting, but the well preserved clothing and jewelry, art and artifacts. Lovingly collected and displayed!

This museum is a welcome testimonial of jewish muslim cohabitation in north africa. It gives a different persoective on history with great exhibitions of photos to capture the past but also show the ongoing effort to restore cemetaries and synagogues in remote deserted towns. Tremedous research effort in curating the most representtaive pieces shows. This is a must visit where... More

Architecture of the building is very eye catching and functional. The exhibits helpful in understanding the cohesive environment where the religious communities met and survived together.
