“I have never been to a museum for wood before...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

… but a really nice first opportunity for me. The exhibition is interesting and of good quality. The buildings itself as an old but freshly restored Funduq is worth visiting. Café with nice view on the roof.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum! The building is beautiful as are the displays. The labels definitely tested my limited knowledge of french, but you can enjoy the museum without reading the labels.

“History lesson told through arts & crafts”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

The Nejjarine Museum is worth a look during a visit to the Fes Medina. The Nejjarine includes a nice collection of wooden arts and crafts. There is a very interesting giant set of scales that are a focal point in the center of the first floor.

The building itself is gorgeous and the architecture well restored and maintained.

There are displays of various arts and crafts that provide an interesting history as to the development of Morocco. I must say that I would not have made a special visit just to see the Nejjarine Museum. However, if you are walking through the Fes Medina, you will likely pass it and I would recommend a short visit to see a different perspective of Moroccan history.

“Interesting museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

The wood artifacts on display ranging from carpentry tools, intricately carved etageres, and elaborately painted boxes to wedding chairs, keys, and a cradle are simply but effectively displayed. English is not used extensively in the captioning, but the artifacts require little explanation. Given the importance of intricate woodwork in traditional moroccan decor, this museum is well worth a visit. There are toilets on one of the upper floors. There are benches on each floor. The is a tea room on the roof terrace that offers good moroccan tea and great fresh squeezed orange juice.
