Dar Belghazi Ethnographic Museum

A museum full of curiosities

10 miles from Salé along the motorway towards Kentira is a museum of private origin, founded by artist, Mohamed Abdelillah Belghazi, where you will discover artefacts as beautiful as they are unexpected. Take, for example, the smallest Koran in the world, from the seventeenth century, which can only be read through the aid of a magnifying glass. As you peruse the various exhibits of this museum, you will learn how to identify which tribe a woman belonged to based solely on the jewellery she is wearing. Not to mention the room dedicated to one of Morocco’s flagship-products and star of its export industry: the kaftan. Particularly striking is a yellow piece threaded with gold from eighteenth century Tétouan. Other curious items housed here include the weaving and embroidery collected from across the centuries and regions of Morocco, historic manuscripts, and what are believed to be the very first Arabic instruments.
