The Kasbah Museum (Musée de la Kasbah) in the Moroccan city of northern Tangier was until the opening of the Archaeological Museum of Rabat and Tetouan in 1930 the most important museum in the country. The museum is located in the former Sultan's Palace (Dar el Makhzen) on the Kasbah Rock of Tangier, above the ferry port. The Marshan necropolis is located on a rocky plateau just 1 km west. After the expulsion of the British in 1684, the Sultan's Palace, which was extensively rebuilt in the late 19th century was built on the Kasbah Hill. In 1922, parts of the former palace of the sultan were converted by the city's international administration into an archaeological museum. The museum based on numerous exhibits presented the history of the region around - probably founded by the Phoenicians - Tangiers (Tingis) from the Neolithic to the Portuguese period in the 15th and 16th centuries.
