You'll get a real taste of how education, prayer, and art all come together in this place -- if you bring your own guide, as one is not available at the location.

This is one of the museums I liked the most during all my visits in Fez. There are a lot of objects that attracted my attention.

When I arrived at the museum front door I studied the information board beside the entrance and discovered an ancient Minbar (preacher's chair) imported from West Africa and carved from ebony and ivory was listed as included in the exhibits, so I enthusiastically paid my ten dirhams entrance fee and prepared my camera for work. I was immediately and sternly... More

The exhibits themselves were not that interesting for us - it was all about the wooden doors, shutters, ceilings and the peaceful garden. Worth the small entrance fee for those alone

By Fez standards this place isn't very old but it's quite beautiful, has a great collection of ancient doors and such and a very nice garden

Just outside the main heart of the Medina, this beautiful palace is almost forgotten, we had it all to ourselves at 10 am on a Tuesday morning. Beautiful gardens, fabulous rooms with all the architectural decorations incredibly intact and perfectly maintained. Tucked away in a far corner is a tiny workshop where a third generation wood inlay artesan makes the... More

Sadly this is yet another underfunded and sad Moroccan museum. There are a small number of unremarkable objects on display, arranged by type. The best salon was the one devoted to blue ceramics at the far end of the garden. Beyond the rooms around the front courtyard, there is a lovely and well-maintained garden. As a museum professional, it was... More

A very authentic museum in an ancient Riad. The garden is a great beauty. It is a stylish spot to visit.
