  • Interesting piece of American history in Morocco! Me and my friends are exchange students from the states and enjoyed the museum. Very good entrance price, and it doesn't take too much time to go through the entire museum, maybe an hour.
  • Nice visit which was intersting to discover the relations between the USA and Morocco at their beginning and also that morocco was the first country to recognize the USA. the acces is (20 DH) and its really fascinating. the building itself is gorgeous It gives you the impression like you are in Spain i will say that we had really good time on top of the city that was really nice
