Tetouan, Morocco

This museum commemorates the history Morocco has as a supporter of American independence from Britain. Inside, there are fine art exhibits like photography, paintings, and precious artifacts. There are often free events here, for which you should arrive early to get a good spot. The interior is gorgeous, so amidst all this history you might find yourself busy taking pictures for Instagram.

This warren of several old houses is technically on American soil and has an intriguing history. It doesn't have any diplomatic function anymore, but is instead a museum chock-full of Morocco-related art and historical tidbits. Surprisingly fascinating were the two dioramas of tin soldiers, just a tiny fraction of what Malcolm Forbes collected and were somehow saved from melting down and stowed in this place. There's also a nice display on Paul Bowles, with audio clips of him reading his work. Oh, and as a bonus: it's free!
