The ethnographic museum and gallery are closed, so basically it's just a tower (with some posters explaining points of local history on the walls) and a one-cell prison (with original shackles still in place). Some nice photo ops from the windows of the tower.

In the museum you can find a bit about the work that is done to make Mozaics and gypsum calligraphy. For 1 euro (10 dirham) you can enter the garden and the museum, so it is definitely worth it.

Even in January, daffodils were just coming up and the garden exuded calm and beauty. Clime the stairs to the top of the tower for a view of the gardens and the city.

Very interesting to walk around and explore with interesting gardens and stunning views from the towers. Definitely worth the entry fee to go and see.

Kasbah is located In the center of the medina. It has quirky hours - up to the lady showing up to sell the entry tickets. The kasbah was constructed by Morocco's greatest builder, Sultan Moulay Ismail. It served as a prison in which you are able to walk around - we were told by our guide that the people brought...

The exhibits are poorly set up and organized. Descriptions are only in Spanish. The only thing worth going to this museum for is the view and photo op from the tower.

As most of the reviews make it apparent, it's a very basic museum with no English information. Good for whiling away 30 (at a push 60) minutes. Hadn't previously used Google's Translate using my cellphone camera as the input - worked like a charm (mostly!). The views aren't bad, but if you don't mind a bit of a walk, rather... More

This is located off of the main square in Chefchaouen. It was nice to step into the quiet garden to escape the activity of the Plaza Outa el Hammam. The tower afforded a great view of the whole picturesque village of Chefchaouen.
