Agadir will have a (real) Amazigh heritage museum


Agadir, the capital of the Souss region, will be equipped with an Amazigh heritage museum. The technical studies and the monitoring of the construction and equipment works have just been entrusted to BETEC, a design office located in Casablanca for a little over 1.5 million dirhams. Everything will be overseen by SDL Agadir Souss-Massa Development as the contracting authority.

Agadir, the city headed by the head of government Aziz Akhannouch, already has a municipal museum dedicated to Amazigh heritage, but one of the components of the vision of the new leaders is to put the package on Amazigh soft power.

The museum in preparation will be fed largely by the collections already available at the municipal museum by enriching it with other contributions. The initiators of this project thus intend to contribute to the revival of tourism and the safeguarding of a heritage common to all Moroccans.

The municipal museum, meanwhile, opened its doors on April 29, 2000, the anniversary of the earthquake that struck the city in 1960.
