The building, built between 1901 and 1909, was first used as a department store, the Galeries de France. Its architecture is neo-moorish. It was rehabilitated to host the museum on five levels. The MaMa was opened at the occasion of the operation "Algiers, capital of the Arabic culture 2007". It was supported by the ministry of Culture, Khalida Toumi. The museum is located at the number 25 of the street Larbi Ben M'hidi (formerly rue d'Isly). The current curator is Mohamed Djehiche, an art historian.
