“Nice building/gardens. Quick pop-in.”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

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.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

I have to say im not a museum kinda person, but this was so interesting (I did have a guide). 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 (30 pence Uk) - next to hotel batha

“Worth a look!”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This museum costs about a dollar to enter and is well worth the price. There are several rooms with exhibits of the arts and crafts of Morocco including traditional clothing, jewelry, ceramics, textiles, leatherwork, guns and much more. It is situated in the grounds of a former mansion and you can walk through the gardens. Best seen in spring when it is greener but still nice to see in the autumn.

“Lovely building but little exhibited.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We'd hoped for more exhibits. Perhaps they could take some of the arms exhibits from Borj Nord to enhance the experience? The building and gardens are worth seeing though The entrance was difficult to find.
