Inside Le Musée Abderrahman Slaoui in Casablanca

If you’re looking for some unique art and antiques in Casablanca that you can just breeze through in 30 minutes or an hour, than head over to Musée de la Fondation Abderrahman Slaoui. The private collection of a local successful businessman Slaoui showcases his taste for advertising and travel posters, modern art, jewelry and glassworks.

Opened in 2001 by the family before his death, you can find artifacts from the 1860s to 1960s. The posters was what blew my mind, displaying Arabic figures in dessert settings. I have a deep love of vintage travel ads so I had to buy their postcard collection.

You can head up to the third floor for some mint tea and to browse their library to find other modern Moroccan artwork.
