Museums to visit in Morocco

Moulay Idriss Tomb

Take a break from the frenetic souks to experience the treasures housed in the various museums of Morocco.

Quite apart from the many arts, archaeological find and natural science artefacts housed in these museums, the buildings themselves are often wonderful examples of the Moroccan architecture through the ages.

The location of Morocco at the tip of North Africa has given it a rich history from prehistoric to Roman and the berber and arab civilizations.

For much more detail about these museums see the museums pages of maroc.net.
