The modern museum building is quite innovative, and is worth checking out both inside and out. The big draw for me was the historical retrospective on Morrocco in the Middle Ages (till June). I found it very helpful for understanding the course of Morroccan history!
The permanent collection of modern art I found uninspiring. It would probably be more meaningful to Morroccans.
There are also a couple of quirky temporary installations on the ground floor that are great fun!
Note that entry is 40 D, expensive for here.

This is a relatively new museum with a diverse collection of art, sculpture, architecture and everyday items from ancient history to current day.

It is time to have a museum in the capital of Morocco that has a beautiful architecture, and is representative of Moroccan arts and culture throughout its rich and diverse history.
Every city in Morocco should have such a museum, and then every town and village should have a cultural place to represent and preserve the culture and arts. Mohamed VIth museum is a good beginning and opens its doors to a good variety and diversity of what Morocco has been and is today. A must for all Rabat visitors both Moroccans and international. Very professionally made, wish we had audio guides for all areas of the museum to enrich the knowledge of those who want to do so.

Moroccan modern and contemporary art is showcased at this brand new (late 2014) museum. While the English language information is lacking a bit, the art mostly speaks for itself. I particularly enjoyed the basement, which housed the most contemporary works. Lots of multi-media/mixed media and very interesting.

This very new museum was really a pleasant surprise! It looks impressive from the outside but at our first visit it was closed and with no sign of opening hours, not even on their website, it felt like it was not opened yet.
But a phone call the next day confirmed the opening hours (10-6 every day except one day a week, which seem to be Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday depending on who you ask).
It's said to have been opened on October 7th 2014, but we felt like we were the first visitors ever. The people working at the entrance were very nice but seemed quite surprised (and excited) that some real visitors actually showed up! And the shop and the café/tea room are still not opened.
You walk down to the basement to see a quite big and diverse exhibition of moder Moroccan art. It feels a bit strange that such a big and new museum have hidden the big exhibition space in the basement, but in a way it gives it a quite raw and artistic feeling, more like a private gallery than an institutional museum. I was really surprised of the quality and that some parts actually felt quite political. A very nice way to discover a lot of new - and for most westeners - probably unknown artists.
At the second floor is a quite big exhibition of paintings from the last hundred years, showing how modern art have emerged in Morocco. Not as mind opening and inspiring as the basement pieces, but still nice and classy and well presented. All in all a very pleasant visit and a good way to freshen up your sences with some modernity - since Morocco otherwise will fill you up mostly with tradition and ancient history.
