USA’s first overseas embassy was, guess what- Tangier! And hence, in order to mark the importance of the same, the Tangier American Legation Museum was established. Designed in old world style, the museum exhibits arts and different mementos dating back to the historic times. There are many displays which tell you about America’s connection with Morocco. If you’re a fan Paul Bowles, then this museum will surely treat you to the fullest! Great place to spend an hour or two if you want to indulge in something different.
