Tahiri Museum-Fossils And Minerrals

Erfoud is a small village located between Errachidia city and Rissani village. Its main economy is relying on the prehistoric fossils excavated in the region. This area is known to be a heaven for hundreds of varieties of fossils which some are dated back 500 million years ago. Many of the locals benefit of this lucrative business by selling all kinds of fossils to museums abroad and tourists.
Midway between Erfoud and Rissani, this private museum is hard to miss—just look for the giant replica dinosaurs standing outside. Take a peek inside at the interesting, well-presented collection curated by Moroccan paleontologist Brahim Tahari; it includes fossils, bones, minerals, flints, crystals, and assorted oddities.
There’s a shop attached if you want to purchase your own bit of prehistory.

Tahiri Fossil Museum and shop is a treasure trove of the past. Knowledgeable guide Azzeddine explained the pieces on display, and the workmanship of the tradesmen working to produce stock for worldwide markets. An extraordinary combination of past and present.
