Outstanding museum

This museum is one of the most interesting ones to visit inside the medina ( old city). The woodwork is outstanding.

Our guide took us here. It is a traditional building with three levels of exhibit rooms and a nice terrace with a good view. Almost all the signage is in arabic or french, but you can usually figure out what you are seeing. It takes about one-half to one hour. Entry is about a dollar per person.

We recently visited Fes and we decide to go into the Nejjarine Museum of Wood arts and while the wood carvings inside are truly amazing, we loved having tea on the rooftop during the call to prayer more then anything on the inside of the museum. The rooftop has a few tables and a great view of the city!

An interesting assortment of exhibits, although with limited English description. The building itself is is also lovely to see, and worth the entrance fee.

It is difficult to imagine that this beautiful structure was once a hostel for the local college students! The museum has lovely artifacts from everyday life....cupboards, musical instruments, weapons.....each piece beautifully decorated and a work of art. My only wish is that English descriptions were offer along with the French and Arabic.

It takes little time to see the museum and it's really worth it. Also, don't miss a chance to drink a mint tea on the terrace and see the nice view of the market in front of the museum.
