MOROCCO

The sights and sounds of North Africa are reproduced in this graceful, privately sponsored pavilion of traditional Moorish design with arches and an open patio. One section is a bazaar, where Moroccan goods are for sale. Elsewhere, works by Moroccan artists are on display, as well as documents and memorabilia significant to Morocco's history. An information center offers advice on import-export trade as well as on the country's tourist attractions. There are two restaurants and a night club.

* Admission: free.
