Wonderful collection with a broad variety of exhibits. Very worthwhile place to visit - beautiful building and peaceful garden at the top of the Kasbah.

I was surprised that none of the display were in English. Everything was in French, Spanish, and Arabic.

This place was amazing - hidden away, empty when we walked in. It has a nice display of art and history with old Qurans and traditional furniture, including sultan's treasury. Recommended.

Fascinating museum with artifacts dating back to the Bronze Age. A little tough to find in the Kasbah. Some locals will charge a few dirham to show you the way. Well worth the 20dh/2 euro admission.

Our guide took us here there were some neat things to see and this only took about half an hour. The map was interesting.

As i remember, it close at 1800. And sometimes they might close earlier than 1800. i would suggest you to arrive there before 1700.
