Even though the entry fee is cheap (10DH) I expected more from this. The guide book I had recommended it but theres only about 4 rooms containing a small amount of items, not particularly nicely presented. Unless you have a particular interest in archeological items...More

this is a real shame for the government of Morocco - with such briliant history of Northern Africa they have small, badly organised museum where there is no guide and literally very little explanations of who and when was coming to that place to settle...More

Worst museum ever. A few shards and other bric-a-brac, no decent lighting or explanation, most of the pieces were out on loan, including the main attractions from the bronze room.

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...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....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.
