If you are a Paul Bowles buff this is a must-visit. It has an amazing collection of his belongings and memorabilia related to him, including his last passport and Moroccan identification card. Otherwise, visitors will really enjoy artifacts related to the history of the city. A strong collection is on display, which is great because the city (and perhaps the... More

We were taken here by a local despite assuring them we could find it on our own. Tucked away close to the Tangier Fish Market, quite a few stairs up and lovely twisting and winding streets leading away and then more stairs back down to the waterside.

This was the first U.S. Diplomatic overseas post. Well worth the time to visit - a real treasure of American history. Will help you understand the long-standing relationship between the U.S. and Morrocco.

I wasn't prepared to like this museum but found it to be intriguing. It was fun to learn connections between the US and Morocco over the years from military & political to movies and music. You won't need more than 45 min but it's worth a stop

A nice quite building with an interesting display of pictures, books and other memorabilia from the 200+ years since it became the USA's first overseas 'embassy'.

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.

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
