MUSEUMS OF MOROCCO
TANGIER


THE MUSEUM OF ANTIQUITIES

If you walk into the former kitchens of the Dar El Makhzen palace, you will come face to face with Moroccan antiquity and pre-history, such as bronzes and mosaics from the Roman sites of Lixus, Cotta, banasa or Volubilis.

The later was where the famous mosaic known as "The Voyage of venus" was found, showing the Goddess enthroned among a group of nymphs on a ship cutting its way through clear blue, almost transparent, waters.

The history of Tangier and its region is told on the first floor. In Room 3, devoted to antique funeral rites, there stands an amazing life-size model of a Carthaginian tomb, amidst a group of small lead sarcophagi and a child's tomb buried in a clay jay.

finally, you can end your visit in the peaceful andalusian garden, where the repreoduction of an antique necropolis appears to have been slumbering for centuries.
