Museum highlights the history of Moroccan-American relations and is small but very interesting. Don't miss it.

If you know how to negotiate a taxi, this place is perfect. Don't try to walk it especially if it's hot. It's really the bare minimum here but they are friendly and you'll probably meet some other people.

Only takes 20 minutes to see it all, but a nice historical building and a good way to spend a few minutes. Not a life changing experience of course, but there's not a whole lot in Tangier anyway.

Hidden away, remote, gorgeous, typical Moroccan building - make sure you visit the Paul Bowles section; calm courtyards and a maze of rooms; delightful slice of global memories commemorating not only a great American writer but an amazing and surprising chunk of history that made my eyebrows rise.

Who would have thought Morocco was first to recognize our independence as well as its role in WW2. There is not much information in the building. It's free. There is a bookstore but apparently they close from 1:00 - 3:00 and I didn't make it back.
