“Go to see this...”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Go to see this not because of the wood museum which is interesting but because its a great example of a Caravansarai. Its wonderfully restored and you can feel the history that passed through these gates. Some great example of wood products and tools.

They also have clean restrooms!

“Great service and food”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Efficient, clean and delicious food. The staff are very friendly, hard working and eager ti please. Complimentary starters and dessert on top of the menu. The price of the menu is fixed between 13-15 euros. The restaurant has an authentic decor and it's huge! if you have a guide with you, they usually eat upstairs with the other guides so you don't need to feel pressured into inviting them to eat with you. Great atmosphere and great food.

“Definitely worth the visit”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Not so easy to find & it closes at 5pm but make a point of going here. Fascinating collection of wood crafts & tools, but it starts with examples of the different trees they use & maps of where they grow in Morocco. Wonderful examples of traditional wooden panels, doors, decorative pieces, oil presses, etc. The 3 storey house is a wonder in itself. Sadly all the explanations are in French, but I put a note in the suggestions book, so maybe they will add English ! There is a lovely roof terrace where you can but a cheap drink ( no food) & have a rest. Only 30p to get into the Museum & 10p for a mint tea or cold drink.

“Extraordinary building and collection....”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This fondouk was a rest stop for traveling merchants. They would sleep on the two upper levels and their animals and merchandise would be safe in the inner courtyard below.
Now those rooms showcase the wooden arts and crafts of Morocco. There are no signs in English, but the items are easy to identify. There are sample trunks and photos of the typical local woods: cedar (cedre), arganier (argan), thuya, eucalyptus, lemon (citronnier); walnut (noyer); juniper (genevrier); and pin tayda (which I couldn't figure out -- perhaps another reader can idenify it).
Items on exhibit include anything and everything made of wood -- spinning wheel, olive press, bread paddle, chests, baby furniture, cabinets and shelves, architectural pieces; bellows; combs; frames, etc. My favorites were mirrored jewelry boxes, lined in silk, with various compartments and drawers.
There is a beautiful view from the roof.
Entrance fee is 20 dirham.
Both the building and the museum collection are extraordinary.
