Lonely Planet review

The interesting Archaeology Museum (even if the labels are only in Arabic and French) gives a good account of Morocco’s history. Prehistoric finds include a beautiful neolithic rock carving of a man surrounded by concentric circles. The highlight of the collection is the Salle des Bronzes , which displays ceramics, statuary and artefacts from the Roman settlements at Volubilis, Lixus and Chellah. Look out for the beautiful head of Juba II and don’t miss the tiny acrobats – all found at Volubilis. The fate of the artefacts here is uncertain as a new ethnographical museum is planned, as well as a museum at Volubilis itself.
