MUSEUMS OF MOROCCO
TETOUAN


THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM

Built in 1943, this museum presents Moroccan pre-historic and pre-Islamic sites from the northern region of Morocco. You cannot fail to be entranced by the welcome from the Three Graces as you enter, depicted in a superb roman mosaic celebrating mythological extravagance.

Other rooms display objects and instruments which take us back to a way of life far removed from our own. prehistoric tools, coins, bronzes and pottery bear witness to customs both ritualistic and familiar. For example, the Sumerian ex-voto statuette found close to Asilah.

Most of the figurine collection dates from the first century a.d. At the end of the visit, let your imagination roam among the 60,000-odd volumes contained in the vast library dedicated to the preservation of North African literature.
