I really enjoyed my visit to this museum! The building is beautiful as are the displays. The labels definitely tested my limited knowledge of french, but you can enjoy the museum without reading the labels.

The Nejjarine Museum is worth a look during a visit to the Fes Medina. The Nejjarine includes a nice collection of wooden arts and crafts. There is a very interesting giant set of scales that are a focal point in the center of the first floor. The building itself is gorgeous and the architecture well restored and maintained. There are... More

The wood artifacts on display ranging from carpentry tools, intricately carved etageres, and elaborately painted boxes to wedding chairs, keys, and a cradle are simply but effectively displayed. English is not used extensively in the captioning, but the artifacts require little explanation. Given the importance of intricate woodwork in traditional moroccan decor, this museum is well worth a visit. There... More

This little museum is very well presented and easy to get around. The displays of wooden objects are unusual in many cases. The descriptions are in Arabic and French so it was a bit of fun trying to guess what some of the unusual objects were and in many cases we were right after translating the French.

Lovely building with nice views outside. The exhibits not especially riveting. Loved the big scales in the inner courtyard.

As we went by we popped in with low expectations, and had a nice surprise at the beautiful and varied collection of wooden items. Doesn't take long and well worth it.

Very interesting, it's a shame there isn't more information available about the building and its restoration but it is beautiful. The view from the roof is worth the entrance fee alone. Well woth a visist.

The city itself is already open museum of beautiful wood works. This museum have many rooms that does not show anything different from what you see around. Not sure if it is worth the visit.

Once you've found this it's worth going in and admiring the beautifully restored building and the interesting exhibits. It will give you respite from the hectic square outside and allow you time to appreciate the workmanship.

You only need to allow 45 minutes to an hour here and it's worth the time as you will pass it whilst in the medina anyway. Some beautiful examples of carving on display, plus old tools, different wood varieties. The building is beautiful and there's a lovely roof terrace with great views and a coffee shop. Lots of steep stairs... More
