This place was originally built as a comfortable, safe hostel for caravanserais, it later became a hostel for students of the nearby Medersa. It is a very harmonious building in white and rich, dark wood. It houses a museum of wooden artefacts which are interesting and varied. From the top you have a good view of Fes.

beautiful building, fascinating history and exhibits, if you are fascinated by the history of the medina and the local culture this is well worth a look, lovely terrace restaurant

The museum is hard to find. I got a guide at Medina entrance but he mislead me to shops instead of the actual museum. Be alert! At the museum you can see plenty of items of different crafts, even some musical instruments. Worth a visit if you are in Fes. The building itself is remarkable too and do not miss the rooftop - views are one of the best around Fes Medina. On another hand if you are not around Fes I would not bother traveling far just to visit this place. Also note that most items are barely marked and labels are in French.

The entry fee is 10 dirham (about 1 euro). If it's a hot day in the medina, this can be a cool cultural escape where you can view some great historic woodwork. There is also a terrace where you can enjoy a quick drink and soak up the view. The signs, though incredibly informative, are all in French and Arabic. English-speaking tour guides will happily translate for you. I first went to this museum as part of a tour of the Fez medina. For those without French or Arabic, I would recommend doing this.

Lovely building.
Small entry fee.
Basically covering the history of wood work from times past.

Wish we knew more French to get a better understanding of it all.

Your guide will likely walk by and offer you and opportunity to walk in.

Want the highlight of the day out in Fes but worth a look.
