Housed in a wonderfully preserved art deco style residence this museum provides insight into a bygone era. There is wonderful art and all sorts of mementos together with a bookshop on the ground floor. If you hadn't heard of Paul Bowles before you visited you will by the time you leave.

Especially interesting for fans of Paul Bowles, but has many artifacts from when the US had active involvement with Morocco.

Being American Canadian, it was interesting to learn about the USA's long history with Morocco which is something I had never known before. Very beautiful place to live

An ok collection but I think a trick has been missed here to make this a little more interesting. A brief history guide in each room would help take one on a journey through each room.

Fascinating and important history not taught in American schools. Interesting historic documents. Beautiful historic building. Lovely watercolors by local artist downstairs next to where you pay entrance. Located in the Kasbah.

We walked into the anteroom of the Legation, but couldn't get too much farther without paying a fee for a guided tour. Since it was a budget trip, we declined.

Particularly interesting to see the historical connection with America. Beautiful rooms, gives you a feel for Tangier in different time periods.

Great history lesson and adds to the Tangier experience. We didn't realize the relationship between the US and Tangier. There are some interesting stories and literary history.

We expected to spent about 30 minutes at the museum but had to rush out after 45 to check out at our hotel. Interesting place with a lot of interesting facts written on the walls.
