    Visiting Dar el Makhzen(entrance Casbah square) :

    by khalid_2 Written May 2, 2006

    Opened from Sunday to Saturday except Tuesday (9-13 / 15-18)
    This ancient palace of the sultan was established under the kingdom of Moulay ismail and it knew different expansions through the next centuries. This palace has very beautiful apartments dressed in carved mosaic and plaster and it is decorated with a patio bordered by marble columns.
    Nowadays the building shelters the museum of Moroccan Arts as well as an archaeological collection coming essentially from volubilis.

    This museum sited at kashbar square used to be the palace of the sultan, but now offers to the people that find it and want to pay the 1 euros (10 dirhans) lots of ancients discoveries since the Neolithic times of Morocco.

    It deserves not only because of that, also it is nice to see the carved ceilings and the gardens.

    Okay, we didn't actually go here, because it was closed (Sunday). But we wanted to check it out because I have heard and read that it is worth seeing for the attractive building, the exhibits, and the Sultan's Gardens, so I included it here for other people who may wish to visit it. The museum is in what used to be the former Sultan's palace.
