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.

A brief walk from the old city towards to the Palace one will find the museum with an entrance fee of about DHS10 per adult. Most interesting to me was the almost intact and large size Roman era mosaic in one of the exhibits ....More

This museum has a really good potential, the exibition is short but really interesting. What is awful is how it is conserved. The labels of the exibited pieces are broken, dirty and even some add an interrogation mark (?) after the dates. The price is...More

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

It's a very nice museum, with lovely grounds showcasing the main sites of Northern Morocco. Tamuda is near by, so after being inspired by this museum we took a taxi there to walk around the ancient trading town that brought freight from the river. Moreover...More

The museum is only a few rooms but we found it quite interesting. We had visited Volublis prior to coming to Tetouan so we had some background which added to the visit. It brought up a spirited discussion with our teenage girls on what archeologists...More
