“Gorgeous collection, perfect size, lighting not the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

First, if you take a cab, make sure you are clear about your destination. Our cab driver took us to the wrong museum at first (the Jewish museum) and had to stop and ask directions to this one. But it was well worth the frustration in getting there. The objects on display were all in marvelous condition and you could get close enough to see them and take good pictures. There was a perfect variety of glass work, jewels, paintings, sculpture, and old travel posters. The lighting could use a little work... sometimes there was just too much glare, There was no guided tour, and you'd enjoy your visit more if you could read French... the signs were mostly in French and Arabic. I wish I could have learned more about the objects I was seeing, but I enjoyed them even without information. Upstairs there's a lovely balcony and a lounge with sofas and interesting art books to leaf through.

“Make time to visit this lovely museum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

We seldom see displays of sparkling clean colored glass bottles and boxes in well-lit glass cases--the collection here is beautifully displayed. The eclectic collection includes old travel posters and several paintings by Jacques Majorelle, furniture, and other interesting objects. This small museum is a treat, well worth a visit.

“A once in a life time experience in Casablanca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

I visited the museum while being in Morocco and well:
The permanent collection is an invitation to travel back in time with the collector.
There is among others a beautiful collection of ancient jewelry from Fes!
The architecture of the building itself is stunning ( art deco period )

It is worth visiting and fyi do not forget to take a break at the little coffee place, they make delicious moroccan tea that you can enjoy while looking at the stunning view from the terrace.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

In a city full of noise and hectic, it is like a miracle to find a rafinated place full of taste and well organized. My compliments to the foundation. This is a hidden side of a country with an open culture.
Don't expect a theme or a structure. It is the collection of a private person, who traveled quite a bit

“Lovely, small museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

This museum offers a small and very interesting collection with varying exhibits. I especially enjoyed the travel posters, jewelry and current photography exhibit. Cafe on the top has a lovely view also.
