  • This woodwork museum is built in an old caravanserai or traveller’s lodge. Fondouks are buildings built around a central courtyard, to provide shelter and protection for traders from the caravan...  more »
  • Al Nejjarine Museum was very cool with tools, guitars, and all types of wooden things and lovely craftmanship. Located in the Medina, this is another oasis in a sea of chaos. Worth making the time...  more »
  • We visited a few days before the country shut down due to COVID-19. There were still a lot of people in the Medina, but a lot of the attractions had very few visitors. The Museo Nejjarine was empty....  more »

  • Nice museum. Easy to whip through, with good informative plaques to guide through the exhibit. In a beautiful heritage building. Entry 20 MAD pp
  • Fes, a place where does not stink as I thought but full of dishonest people trying to rip the tourists off. The owner of the facility nearby this attraction for us shooting the tanneries offered a price at MAD4000(~HKD3200) but certainly much cheaper after rounds of negotiations. Very very bad experience if you wanna go for the tanneries here.
  • An interesting example of Moroccan inn architecture, with much of the interior decoration consisting of wood, which I imagine is the reason why they opted for converting the building into a wooden arts & crafts museum. Other than the building being attractive in itself, there isn’t much to see in the museum except items which can already be seen quite often in today’s actual Morocco (doors, door frames, everyday objects, wedding gear etc.). It is however an enjoyable and tranquil visit, best taken when you’ve got time to waste or hide from the rain (personal experience :))
  • Interesting to see but $400 to $ 1000 for a leather jacket is just uncalled for. Avoid this tourist trap ripoff
  • Quite an interesting collection of artifacts in a fantastically restored foundouk. Very worthwhile, and a nice quiet break from the busy souks outside.
