If you're interested in the history of American-Moroccan relations this museum is for you. The house is simply beautiful. You can read newspapers from the 40s, listen to old music and walk around all rooms. Nice Christmas decorations in December.
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).
