The Sultan of Morocco included "Americaines" vaguely in a list of trading partners during the American Revolution, which seems to have been interpreted as diplomatic recognition, so Morocco is the first country to have recognized the U.S. Anyway, the museum is interesting for its displays on U.S. connections to Morocco. If you're not an American, however, I can't imagine why... More

Great thing for Americans to see. Morocco was the first country to recognize the US as an independent nation, and there is even a letter written by George Washington himself thanking the King of Morocco.

Entered from an alley within the medina, typical except for the brightly painted wooden pallets, adorned with flowering plants, hung along the narrow walls. Some of the rooms and terraces are so close to the visible street life, they seem intermeshed yet what grandeur awaits inside. This is an opportunity to step into history within beautiful rooms, most with interesting... More

This place is an interesting visit for anyone who is intrigued by the multicultural and political past of Tangier. The fact that it is a US outpost actually gives it an objective overview of the superpower struggles over the cit and the Straits - refreshing and unlike most American heavy handed adventures.

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
