Explore the zoo



Rabat Zoo offers to its visitors the opportunity to explore the museum dedicated to the valorization of the paleontological heritage of Morocco and the history of animal population in the Moroccan territory, since the end of the Tertiary and all along the Quaternary eras (between 2,500,000 years ago and 7,000 years ago).
Through animal bones which once existed in Morocco, which are exhibited in the zoo museum in addition to the explanations provided, the main objective of this exhibition space is to raise awareness among the general public on the importance of Moroccan animal heritage and on the need for its safeguarding for future generations.
The young audience can also attend a screening of a scientific film.
