Sharing the history of an institution and the heritage of a country
Bank Al-Maghrib Museum was inaugurated in June 19, 2002 by His majesty King Mohammed VI. It houses a unique collection of coins and banknotes, the original core of which was acquired in 1947.
In 2009, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of Bank Al -Maghrib, a new scenographic project was born. This new area, which was built according to the most modern museum techniques, extends over almost 2,000 m², and invites visitors to share not only the history of an institution’s heritage, but also the one of a people and a country.
This timeless space is organized into three areas:
- The History of Currency Area traces back the different civilizations from ancient times to the present day, through an important numismatic collection.
- The Art Gallery, which is the second component of the museum, houses a collection of works of art, which bear the mark of several great Moroccan and foreign artists.
- The Bank Area traces back the development of the central bank throughout history and presents its fundamental missions.
