  • I went to this museum for the first time with my guests from USA. I was really surprised to see objects and utensils that my Berber grandparents of the anti atlas used and that I possess as souvenirs of my ancestors. Moroccans of Jewish faith really have a long history in Morocco. I am very happy to have got to know this place, and I would most often send my tourists to see the history of my country in this museum. Very good initiative. Thank you.
  • I am inviting all to come to MARRAKESH in order to discover this new Museum of Confluence. It is highly recommended for the splendid architecture and the Highly interesting items exposed and concerning Christianity, Judaism and Islamic cultures.
