The museum is not free, as mentioned by another reviewer, but currently charges a 10 dirham entrance fee. It is currently closed on Sundays, but the opening times are not listed outside the building. I disliked being escorted from room to room by a wheezing...More

This museum is free and has some great mosaics from Volubilis and elsewhere. We were alone in the museum and could enjoy the displays, including the outdoor garden with more mosaics.

Not much to do in Tetouan so you should make this a priority. Wasn't easy to find, it's connected to the outer wall of the medina and you get to it from outside the wall. Well worth it.

The museum is right around the corner from the Blanco Riad hotel. It gives a concise history of the area and has many artifacts on display. The admission price was only 10 dirham (about $1.00 USD).

A great many of the pieces on display in the archaeological museum come from Lixus, a city founded by the Phoenicians. The museum's walls and surrounding garden also contain mosaics, vases and everyday objects that are vestiges of what later became a Roman city
