Suggest having a city map for the taxi driver: this small cultural museum is tucked away in lovely building in a quiet, upscale residential neighborhood. Some of the artifacts - artwork are exquisite; Morocco's Jewish heritage runs deep and visits to the museum acknoweldge this. Staff let us wander as long as we wished. The visit was worth our time; there is no guest book which was a disappointment.

This is a special place. Jews have a long history in Morocco and the museum tells their story and displays a great many artifacts. We were lucky enough to meet the curator and were surprised to learn that there had been Jewish Berbers! It's a slice of history very worth knowing.

The place was very far away. I took the tram to Oasis and then walked for about 1 km or 1 mile. The place was not huge. I concluded that one should go only if you had to go to every Jewish museum. Otherwise, it could be skipped.

The museum held a large number of artifacts from centuries of Jewish life in Morocco. The clothes were impressive. But the collection of bimahs and other synagogue artifacts were one part amazing, and two parts sad. At least they are doing their best to preserve Moroccan Jewish heritage before it is lost.

Though the musuem is not located in the down town area and one will need to hire a taxi, it is well worth the visit. Located in a residential area was interesting in and of itself, the musem is modern (recently renovated) has well designed display areas with many exhibits that tell the history of Moroccan Jews. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Though I am not Jewish I enjoyed the experience to learn more about the different peoples that made up historic and modern Morocco.
