I was a bit apprehensive when I took a group of travelers here from my textile tour for noblejourneys.com . The last time I visited, it was rather dark and dank. But the museum is now one of the sites for the Fes Festival of Sacred Music, for which it was renovated, and looks much nicer both inside and in... More

The trees and flowers in the garden are beautiful and nice to have a stroll around. Place of tranquility outside the hectic medina. We loved the craft shop of 2 men making wood inlay arts and useful objects. We bought two wooden boxes of pure hand work and excellent quality.

The gardens inside were beautiful and peaceful. There was not a lot to the actual museum. The information by each artifact was in French and Arabic so we did not know what most things were or how old they were. The 10Dh cost was worth it to see the two men who worked in wood inlay which was beautiful. They... More

A very beautiful building, with a fabulous patio. There is one of the hugest trees i have ever seen. I was there for a concert, as part of the Sufi music festival, and you could not possibly imagine a more spectacular setting.

10 Durham entry which is very cheap. We had a bad start as soon as we entered as a lady was asking for money for her children. Then we went to the bathroom and she wouldn't let us use the toilet without paying her but she didn't appear to work there and we watched other ladies cleaning the toilet not... More

A tranquil respite from the medina. Very near our Ryad (Alya). Beautiful gardens and an interesting museum.

Building and gardens were nice. English explanation of the building outside the entry but that's all the English you'll get. Only 10dh to get in. Exhibits of Fes crafts but very limited explanation in French. Worth no more than 30 minutes of time.

Beautiful grounds and gardens - the batha museum shows you how home life in fez use to be and why they wore the clothes they did and how very little has changed. the museum cost about 10 dirams to enter...
