  • Fine collection, good place to walk around and gave some rest after visiting kasbah. I loved the terrace and the patio with fountain and tortoise:)
  • I really enjoyed this place. It has a lot of historic, diplomatic importance for the relationship between the USA and Morocco. I found the exhibits interesting and culturally enriching. If you're interested in the connection between Morocco and the US diplomatic mission, do not miss this place.
  • It was a very interesting experience, such a wonderful historical place, I loved it Hope you do too
  • More than 200 years of history on display in the stunningly beautiful American Legation Musuem & compound. An incredible collection of photographs, paintings, maps and historical documents. Highly recommend - not to be missed while in Tangier .
  • Very interesting to see one of the first American diplomatic missions. There are displays of the history of the mission, notable Moroccans that became Americans and notable Americans that spent time in Tangier. Several sections were roped off but the courtyard garden was open for visiting. Entry fee was 20 Durhams during my visit on 24 May 2021.
