In the Rabat-Sale-Kenitra area, the commission “decided to choose 83 museum pieces located in the National Museum of Oudaya-Rabat and ten pieces of artifacts in the National Museum of History and Civilizations in Rabat.”
In the Tangier-Tetouan-Al-Hoceima region, the commission chose 37 artifacts at the Casbah Museum of Mediterranean Cultures in Tangier and five museum pieces in the archaeological museum in Tetouan.
The ministry also valued artifacts in the Marrakech-Safi area. “Five artifacts were chosen in Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdallah Museum in Essaouira, and 10 others in the National Museum of Ceramics in Safi.”
