“Nice 1 hour visit”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Closed on Saturday and Sunday.

A neat place. Gives a bit of a taste of the American presence in Tangier. Could do with a lot more explanations with the various exhibits - now it is all rather barren.

You be hard pressed to stay much more than 1 hour. Anyway, there is not much to do in Tangier, so this is a nice break from the Medina.

Didn't realise this place exisited! Fascinating collection in a crumbling old mansion near the port. It's free to visit, just offer a donation.

“Morocco, first to recognise the USA in 1776”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Was cool to see the letter between George Washington and the person in Morocco. Was a tucked away building our guide led us to, but was a stunning house inside. Lovely old features to see and an art exhibit

“Historical Place”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

The place is so historic. It brings you back to the the deepest relationship between the US and Morocco at the time of Tangier as being International. The place also includes many works of Paul Bowl along with a private library and a Museum.
