It is a bit of a time capsule from colonial days but there are good artifacts and occasional narrative overviews in French. DK insight guides are particularly good in laying out museums in Morocco so I strongly suggest you consult that guide before you go to the museum – otherwise you will miss the significance of what you are seeing....

We planned to visit the museum to see the exhibit of Roman bronze from Volubilis. Unfortunately the exhibit is closed but none of our guidebooks indicated that. It had a few bronze sculptures from Volubilis on display but it is very small exhibit. If you are in the area, you can stop by (it is only 10 dirham) but don't... More

The best way to find this museum is to locate the art museum and look for a little white building down a side street. The museum is only one room with a balcony. There are a few Neolithic and Roman relics as well as some pottery and coins but not much else. Some display cases were empty as well, which... More

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".
