It displays wooden artifacts of Morrocon culture. The fees is 20dhirams per person but there is no guided tours here. You can go up to the third floor and view down. Photography is allowed only on the ground floor though. It's beautiful.

You can see the same items in 100's of places all over the world. We didn't find the displays particularly informative or unique, just a bunch of old tools mainly. I would not recommend going here

There are many different artifacts which are interesting to see but really the woodcarving of the building itself makes this a must see destination. If you are using a local guide, he will probably take you here automatically. An example of the level of artistry...More

Can pay a visit if have some time to spare! No photography allowed but no one is there to ensure the rule! Exhibit items are placed in small rooms! One need less than an hour to cover it!

So pretty to look at! Definitely visit for an hour or so. Take the main roads and it should lead you to this place - entrance is from a square.

This museum is a must see... showing examples of the rich tradition of the Najar ( carpenter) of Fez. Wonderful cedar wood and a great view from the terrace.

As far as I recall the big metal scales at the Nejjarine Musuem were used by merchants in earlier times. They have not been newly installed.
