Musée de la Fondation Lorin


This eclectic museum is housed in a former synagogue. Here you will find an open 2-storey room with an engaging collection of B&W photographs of 19th- and 20th-century Tangier on the walls. Meanwhile, a children’s theatre production may be going on in the centre. The museum doubles as a workshop for disadvantaged kids, bringing life to the static display.
