This location is near the Parliment building on a small side street. Very small site with only a few rooms of limited neolithic and Roman era items. The cost is 10dh and will only take you a 30-45 minutes to complete so take your time. The signage is in French and Arabic, no English. Not the British Museum but we... More

It was worth the trek just because I enjoyed the roman history so much but it is very much out of the way. And my taxi driver took 45 minutes and asking multiple locals for directions. It's small and not very well known.

… but when i where there, many (and not the least) pieces were lent to other museums and not to be seen. The collection is, especially for moroccan standard, a very good one and if you are historically interested you should go and visit. It cost only 10 Dirham and takes no longer than an hour. The museum is not... More

It is a bit difficult to find coz it is in a short street and the building is not big and there are no signs, but if you follow some guide or have gps, there would be no problem. The entrance fee is 10 dh or 1 euro! The man who works there says (one time) that you can not... More

I think when I heard the word "National Archeology Museum" I definitely expected a bigger museum. There were just a few rooms with articles from the neolithic and bronze ages, there are no descriptions in English so it helps to speak French. I think it is worth a visit but if you have absolutely no time it is ok to... More

Interesting displays. It helps if you read French! Does not take very long to see everything they have, but certainly worth the $1 admission charge.

This is a small, inexpensive museum but well worth a visit. The artifacts span centuries and are well arranged. We heard a visiting art curator call a round sculpture of a face representing the sea, "a masterpiece".

A very small museum, you don't need a lot of time to visit it. This makes it an absolute must-see when exploring Rabat. While the first room is rather general and contains objects that you may find in many other comparable musea, the second room contains a real treasure of Volubilis, a former Roman city. I very much enjoyed different... More

Exhibits from Neolithic to modern times. The object I liked the best was a Roman-Egyptian sculpture of an aged fisherman, worn out with a life of toil, still gallantly casting his line into the ocean. The museum described the sculpture as a “caricature” which seemed to me to be cynical

We were staying at the Diwan (about three blocks away) and were very glad we decided to visit this lovely little museum. The property itself is worth seeing. The best exhibits were off the garden (look for the turtle family living in the garden). The cost is very low at 10 dh and a very nice gentleman checked in with... More
