It's really an interesting piece both historically and architecturally as the museum occupies two buildings connected via small bridge over the narrow street of medina they stand on opposite each other. One part is dedicated solely to the US legion and military mission/school, the other part contains more stuff focused on artists who spent at least part of their life in Tanger and reflected the town in their art (whatever form it had).
Poorly exhibited at the start, hard to follow what was going on , or where to turn your head next within the house causing disjointed information and reading non linear history. 50 DH each from what we can remember. That being said after the initial bits of American history the house opened up into a lovely square where we were able to sit and admire the stacked terraced roofs , bountiful flower boxes and the blue blue sky of Tangier. We recommend coming for the not the exhibition. Towards the end , the Paul Bowles exhibit highlighted the influence he took from Tangier and the rest of Morocco , we’ll be downloading his Moroccan LP field recordings in due course… Bonus ambience if American tourists are there when you are.
