  • A pleasant surprise this art gallery in the heart of Rabat. It was the best I went to in the country. Friendly staff and great collection created by Moroccans which helps you to have a broader understanding of life in this country. The pieces are incredible and I hope many of the artists make their way into western collections to get the provenance they deserve
  • Big space, some interesting exhibitions when I visited, especially ones of three major Moroccan primitivist artists. Kind of lazily curated with lots of places where pictures just seem to have disappeared with the labels remaining, or big scars on the walls. But overall its a nice place with a pleasant cafe and a shop.
