We were a group of reform Jews and we ended our tour of Morocco with a visit to the Museum. Our group was not very impressed. Many of the exhibits do not have English texts. We spend around 30 minutes which is sufficient. I would not go out of my the Museum. It has significance because it is the only... More

Has a few exhibits but not as much. It seems like a place that opened. Does not go into the long history of the Jews in Morocco. Has very little mention of the Berber Jews, mostly focuses on Sephardic Jews. Would be better with more details.

a beautiful moderm museum in a former Jewish orphanage, the Bengio Home, a well known Moroccan institution. It has a very important collection including parts of several synagogues. Try to meet the curator Mrs. Zohra, she has an amazing wealth of information and is very friendly. It's hard to find but the taxi driver called her when we were close... More

Must admit, I had a very limited understanding of Jewish ceremony. This museum was quite interesting and informative. On the grounds of a former orphanage, this museum is beautifully maintained and details some key historical bits and pieces as well as ceremonial pieces and museum items. Would advise 30 minutes look around. Wasn't all that easy to find!

The collection of artifacts documenting the culture and material life of Moroccan Jews is important for our understanding of the past and it's shape on the present. The artifacts for the most part are well preserved. However, I didn't gain as much insight as I would have hoped into the Jewish religion and/or how Jewish Moroccan lives stood separate from...

A good museum in a nice building, showing Jewish life in Morocco. What is nice to see is that the lady who works in the museum and showed us around is actually a Muslim, employed by the government Ministry. We really enjoyed speaking to her, and it is heartwarming to see the close ties between the two communities.

It's the only Jewish Museum in the Arab world. It's an important site and there needs to be more like it with more outreach programs.

This museum is installed in a prettily remodelled suburban villa. You can reach it by cab or by walking from Oasis station - in either case, take a merked map. It has rather few visitors and no knowledgeable staff on duty while I was there, so call ahead. It shows photos of all the surviving Moroccan synagogues, and has a... More
