I made a point to stop in here specifically to see the items from Voulibilis. Each item is marked with the site where it was found, so it was easy to concentrate on a specific site. I was most impressed with the bronze room, which...More

If you've got a spare hour, or want to get out of the hot sun, or you're interested in Roman art and civilisation, then this is for you. The museum has recently re-opened after refurbishment. It's well-set out and presented, with good explanations in French...More

It's so disappointing the museum has such lousy service. It's Thursday and only one person selling the tickets. For about 25 people in the line, the wait is over an hour! After one hour in the line, we are still waiting!

the museum is limited to its pieces, in spite of its long history from Roman times till today. Worth and hour or two discovering somethings not common to other museums

It's mostly a hidden museum, for archelogy and roman ancient ruins lovers, offers a good idea about the general history of the kingdom.

I found online that the museum opened from 10a.m. to 6p.m.. But it was closed when we got there before 5p.m.. It was really disappointing.

In a country with such a wealth of archaeological sites this comes as a huge disappointment, it seems as if no update has been made since the time of the French Protectorate... There are a few good pieces but poorly presented, half of the rooms...More

The objects are worth seeing although they are poorly displayed and interpreted for a 21st century museum. The bronzes were on loan to USA but still enjoyed the rest. It's a very small entrance fee and would be hard to charge more for current interpretation....More

As an archaeologist, I have rarely seen an archaeology museum that I didn't like. The National Archaeology Museum in Rabat comes very close to breaking that rule. The museum is small and consists entirely of vitrines of sparse artifacts pinned on the walls with the...More

It was 10am on a weekday when I visited in December (despite some sources saying 9am - I ended up going for a walk while I waited).
