  • The Museum of wood is a beautiful Museum and Palace that once he was a Caravanserai or fundouk, where the caravan people stopped and exchanged goods. On the ground floor there were warehouses and stables for the camels, on the upper floors there were accommodations. Now it's a beautiful Museum, well maintained, various antiques and wooden and not typical. Would not be allowed to photograph, I havn't noticed this warning and clicked photographs. On the top floor there is a terrace with a cup of coffee. I absolutely recommend a visit.

  • A great place to visit - perhaps less so because of the exhibition itself but it’s a nice building with delicate woodwork that worths having a look at...  more »
  • Diverse and high quality wood carving exhibits could be seen. The Pavilion itself was beautiful and as 탸 mold Riyadh over wood ornaments are compelling. Pass in the Medina of Marrakech Grand non seug. Not much featured Turner Lee would spend time in in Fez with a good alternative.

  • Was going to miss this but glad I didn't. Held in a beautiful building with several levels full of rooms with various items. Helpful staff and English labels. Great views from the sunny terrace - pity it wasn't open for drinks while we were there!
  • I highly recommend this stop in the Medina if you are visiting. The restored museum contains the lifecycle if woodcraft, starting with the various kinds of wood found in this area to tools, then to crafts the crafts themselves. You wind your way through the exhibits around a delightfully decorated courtyard that exemplifies the riad style, and find yourself at a small cafe at the top with a couple of good overviews of the surrounding medina.
  • For an entryfee of 20 dirham you get to see three levels of Maroccan archeogical artifacts. Even if that is not your taste, the roof terrace is a good place to grab a Maroccan tea of nespresso coffee and sit in the sun.
  • Beautiful building. Definitely worth a visit. Lots in incredible things to see. View from the terrace is nice too.
  • The collection is interesting and has english descriptions. The view from the roof terasse is amazing and you can get drinks up there.
