Archaeological Museum of Rabat
Morocco, Rabat

The Archaeological Museum in Rabat is located on Rue al Brihi, behind the As Sunna Mosque. The museum was built in 1932 in a small building. Over time, it was significantly increased due to the constant increase in the number of finds. The Archaeological Museum in Rabat is one of the best museums in Morocco, as it contains one of the richest archaeological collections in the country. In 1958, the museum was completely reconstructed, and in 1960, the Minister of Education, the rector of the university and the representative of the Louvre attended the grand opening. Since 1986, the museum building itself has become part of the National Collection, and the museum has been given the status of National. The Archaeological Museum consists of a central hall, a large exhibition hall with a mezzanine, a separate marble bathroom, a patio and a garden.
Museum collections cover prehistoric periods, Paleolithic and Neolithic periods. These collections feature exhibits on the history of North Africa and Morocco, the era of the Romans and Arabs. The museum is divided into three parts. The first part presents exhibits from the time of Roman civilizations. Here you can see Roman statues, clothes and jewelry. There are also busts of ancient Roman politicians and gods. The second part of the museum presents small artifacts decorated with stones and wooden toys that existed more than 6 thousand years ago. The third part is located on the second floor, where historical Islamic collections are presented. Here you can see decorated adobe plates and cups, old manuscripts written in Arabic, coins that were common in the era of the old Sultan in Marrakesh. There are also jewelry, baking dishes and medical instruments. The most significant exhibits of the museum are the famous bronze busts of Yuba II and Cato, a statuette of the Good Shepherd, statues of the crowned Adonis and the dog Volubilis. In 2014, these exhibits were exhibited at the Museum of Civilization in Europe and the Mediterranean.
