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....More

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...More

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...More

It was difficult to find and the signs inside were pretty rubbish, but it’s still worth visiting. It could be a really good museum with a bit of passion and money. I particularly wish they had more on the history of sugar production. Use google...More

Well-organised although slightly hard to find museum (now Musée des Civilisations). The perk of visiting off-season is that until I was leaving, I was the only visitor there and therefore could enjoy the museum without any disturbances. There is actually a lot to see, discover...More

It is a small museum but it holds a fine collection of bronze and marble from mainly the Roman period. Given the cheap entry fee it is definitely worth a visit. It might be hard for someone who does not read French at all and...More

It was near closing time when we visited and not very busy. The staff were very friendly and gave us a personal tour explaining in English.

Small but perfectly formed with many Volubilis treasures. Some superb examples of Roman sculture and jewelry. Plus some stone age petrifacts on display.

Small, but interesting. It only took about 30 minutes to view all on display. Nothing was in English sadly, and there was only a small number of displays. Still, it was interesting if you like archeology and history.
