The museum is right at the edge of the Fes medina so is not a bad spot to check out if one has sufficient or extra time in Fes. Not small, but could use some updating. Has a number of cultural/Moroccan exhibits that could be very interesting to some but tiring for others as the displays lack good descriptions.

The museum has nice pottery on the other side of the courtyard, but mostly the building is nice to see. We were charged 20 Dh though the tickets have 10 Dh printed on them (March 2017).

Beautifully crafted items on display, a lovely building and grounds in itself. Worth a visit for a relaxing look into Moroccan history

The building itself is rather nice but the very small collection has mostly pieces of very bad quality.

Entrance was 20 dirham so about $2 and I honestly think that was way overpriced. The displays were very poorly marked and there honestly wasnt too much to see. The garden when blooming a couple months later in the year might turn this into a 3* site.

The museum is a five-minute walk from Bab Boujloud. It's another lovely old building. Although you are not allowed to photograph the exhibits, you can take photos of the rooms. The pottery exhibit was nice.

I would say that the building is probably more interesting to visit then the museum itself. It deserves a quick visit.

The museum is in the style of a riad so moroccan architecture lovers should visit this place. The antiques are nice.

First time in Fes museums, impolite guards who made us leave our bags in a self made 'vestiaire'. Beautiful palace in need of renovation, very pleasant garden, peace and quiet. No explanations in English or French of the exhibits, just titles, so not very informative.
