Musées Belghazi

Museum in Rabat

This forlorn ethnographic museum certainly isn't worth a dedicated visit from Rabat. It displays a dusty collection of traditional Andalusian, Jewish Moroccan and Islamic arts and crafts amassed by the Belghazi family, and the entry fee is overpriced for what is on offer. The museum is 17km from Salé on the road to Kenitra. Take bus 9 from Bab Chellah in Rabat or from Bab Lekhmiss at the Salé medina.

Displays include measuring instruments (one of the first Belghazis was an astrologist at the Qarawiyin court in Fez), carpets, leather saddles and slippers, jewellery, tools, pottery, embroidery and miniature copies of the Quran.
