With an area of 6813 m2, this first museum dedicated to modern art in Morocco presents the creations of Moroccan artists in the visual arts of the 20th and 21st century.
Located in the heart of Rabat, the Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art strengthens the network of cultural institutions and museums in the capital of Morocco, which was named “Moroccan Capital of Culture” and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2012. In addition, this museum also strengthens the network of cultural institutions throughout the Kingdom, which has more than 50 public and private museums.
