Museum boutique is closed for some reason (probably because the staff is busy gossiping in one of the administrative rooms). Halfway through my visit a lady said I should check my bag at the front. I went there and the 3 girls didn't even acknowledge my presence, they were too busy talking, laughing and gossiping between themselves. Zero professionalism, worse than in a shopping mall. Indeed the admission lady will sell you a ticket and ask that you refrain from taking pictures but I doubt this is enforced (there are cameras throughout), The museum features an AHHH-MAAAY-ZING collection of gold and silver coins (I was surprised that the Bank of Morocco or the Moroccan government had such an extensive collection) from prehistoric times all the way to modern days. There is also an exhibit of banknotes circulated in Morocco from the beginnings to modern days as well as an art exhibit and an exhibition about Saharan trade and Morocco as the trading center between Europe and Africa. The Bank Al-Maghrib is also presented in the context of the activities of a central bank. Don't miss the instructive videos and exhibits on how Moroccan banknotes and coins are produced (and destroyed). Very interesting museum, terrible staff.

It is free for students, but the staff are extremely lazy. Were watching tv with their feet up untill I drew their attention. The collection is nice, but as often in Morocco, it is best if you can read French or are already well-versed in the subject. Can still recommend going here for an hour or so.

It is a good musuem, and the historical site of Bank Al maghrib, good collection of money from differents period (pre history to 90's). it also have a great collection of modern painting. Temporary exibition and the first floor. the entrance fees is 20 DHs (almost 2 Euro), allow around 2 hours, the lady in the ticket desk will tell you that photos are not allowed, however everybody take pictures with their own phones. the panels are very informative the only problem is they are written in Arabic and French Only.

This museum in a bank has two areas of focus and does both of them exceedingly well. For art lovers, start here to view paintings of Morocco by foreign artists, then move to the Museum Mohamed VI to see how Moroccan artists have themselves portrayed their country. Numismatists may not even notice the paintings, as the museums displays and commentaries on coins (many of them very ancient) are the best that I have ever seen.

Currency may be a niche interest, admittedly, but the welcome couldn't have been warmer, and there were also a couple of rooms dedicated to paintings when I visited. (I think one's temporary and one's permanent.) It's also housed in a beautiful building - currently being restored, but the museum is still open - and is free to visit on a Friday.
