I loved this charming museum. Even with the rest of the building under renovation, the museum is still working. This place is a numismatist's dream, as it traces Moroccan history by the coins used here. There are also displays of how Moroccan currency is made...More

In addition to a lovely exhibit on how currency is produced, they had actual (old) plates, paper, and money. They also had a good display of historical Morrocan currency. The most incredible thing? A huge and absolutely priceless collection of antique coins, dating back too...More
