Museums in Agadir

Edit This

If you're looking for a city with a huge, eclectic museum scene, Agadir is not it. This prominent city was ruined by a severe, 15 second eathquake in 1960. More than 50,000 were left homeless and another 15,000 were killed. The vast majority of its historical buildings, monuments and artifacts were destroyed, leaving Agadir quite literally a clean slate.

Bert Flint Museum

There are 5 museums in Agadir, the most famous being the Bert Flint Museum. The man for which the museum is named was a well known Dutch art historian and professor who lived over 40 years in Morocco, collecting antiques and relics of the country, including costumes, fabrics, jewels and Berber crafts. Walking through the museum, you'll notice a strong emphasis on the theatrical arts.

Other Museums

Le Musee des Arts Berberes has a small collection of Berber items from the 19th century including carpets, cases and more, while the Musee Municipal de Agadir displays handicrafts from all over Southern Morocco.

To get a closer look at history, you can go to Musee de Talborjt, which is actually an area of ruins 236 meters above sea level. Here you'll see the famous Kasbah, a 16th century Portuguese stronghold with an amazing view of the city, which was destroyed during the earthquake. All that is left of the place is its walls and the arch at the entrance. This is all that survived of the old Agadir.

The other outdoor museum is Le Sicilien Coco Polizzi, a large area with white painted buildings and narrow, stone streets lined with tiny shops with local craftsmen. It's almost more like a market than a museum.
