Science Museum Planned for Fez

The Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University of Fez has announced that it will set up a science museum in the next three years, which is expected to enable the city to become a hub for large-scale socio-economic and tourism development.

In order to preserve Morocco's natural heritage, a science museum will be established soon by the University in conjunction with various national and international partners, the university said.

The Museum will be dedicated to collecting and presenting galleries of natural objects dating back to several hundred million years, along with exhibitions and explanatory and didactic materials, and brochures aimed at raising awareness of the country's natural heritage.

It will have several galleries. The first will be dedicated to the bones and traces of dinosaurs, marine and continental fossils, and vertebrates and invertebrates that lived in Morocco million years ago as well as extraterrestrial stones such as meteorites and a collection of fauna and flora.
