We visited as part of a tour organised by our cruise operator so can't comment on price but it took about an hour or so to wander around. There isn't much in way of guides or suggested price. The mosque is beautiful inside, amazing craft work. Well worth a visit

This is a must see in Casablanca and I would visit the city again just to see this building! The size and scale of the mosque is amazing and the craftsmanship and attention to detail is exquisite. I found it a very inspiring space, both inside and in the courtyards around it, and find it hard to express just how... More

You can't enter the mosque itself but the grounds and setting are worth the trip. Parts are built over the ocean. The space is so big that it seems very peaceful even with several other people around. Much more austere than I expected.

Hassan II Mosque is spectacular. We went at the golden hour. It was impressive that new construction could live us to the wonders of earlier times.

This Mosque is every bit as god as the Blue Mosque in Istanbul and is a credit to the Moroccan people who built it. Words really cannot describe the interior and exterior of the Mosque ans surrounds. We only had an hour at the site but could have spent longer. It is good to visit these other religious sites being... More

I was not sure what our tour of the mosque would be like, but I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. The building is exquisite and our guide really educated us on so many aspects of Muslim life and practice.

Honestly, we--my wife and I-- had gone there with much expectation as everyone we talked to had described it as "great", 'fantastic" etc. Probably that was a mistake--talking to people--we did, because our own expectation rose way too high. Yes, it is a big mosque--huge, I would say--with a lot of marble, precious stones and wood gone into its making.... More

As one of few mosques that non-muslims to see, it is worth a visit. The place is beautiful! A tour, offered in multiple languages is included in the price of admission. Double check online with tour times, as our guidebook, only published 2 years ago was incorrect on the times. Outer guide had excellent English. She was able to explain... More

I love visiting religious buildings or places of worship (POW). They have an eerie yet enchanting quality to them. The problem with most new POWs is that they somehow lose the spiritual charm. They feel so commercialized and the architecture work seems so mechanical, that a certain mysticism gets lost. Having said that, this mosque is definitely worth the visit... More
