I was here this weekend with some friends and found our visit pleasant! We paid 15 dirhams for admission for both this museum as well as the Museum of Contemporary Art with the student price, although I believe there are certain days that this particular museum is free for Rabat residents. This museum is very small, but there are Roman and Moroccan artifacts, such as pottery, marble, bronze (I think), coins and more. It's a little harder to find, we walked in a circle before having to ask where to find it, but it was very quiet and a hidden gem! The descriptions are only in French and Arabic, but it's cool to see regardless.

Unless you can read Arabic or French, I would skip this. There is no information in English. This small museum is well appointed with some interesting artifacts, some from Volubilis.

The museum is modest in size. It will take you less than an hour to go through it. It does however have some interesting items and provides a good introduction to ancient civilization in Morocco.

Entry was approx. $3 USD so won't break the bank.

The signage, including directional signs on nearby streets, has a new name (which we have already forgotten!) so it can be confusing to find.

This small museum is set in a back street near to the Museum of Contemporary Art and a combined visit would be quite possible. Our private bus stopped in front of the Art Museum and we walked about 75 metres down a small side street opposite to the reach the Archaeology Museum. Don't be put off its small size, as it has some gems, particularly the bronzes now exhibited in their own room to the side of the main display. These were quite stunning and rare examples from the Roman period not just from Morocco but in general. A few of the better known pieces were on loan to other museums but there were still a number of treasures on display. There are also some fine scultpures of Roman figures and gods in marble. The labels were all in French and it would have been good to have an English cheat sheet. There are some toilet facilities available.

If you've run out of things to see on your "A" list for Rabat this could be a strong candidate for a visit. It has a new name now but there are several finds from Volubilis and the Roman era, as well as from the medieval Islamic period

The descriptions are in Arabic and in French, but apparently they have English audio guides
