About Nejjarine Museum of Wood Arts and Crafts

Moroccan crafts and woodwork have always enthralled people across the world. If you are one of those, then don't miss this for the world. The interiors are tastefully carved, the displays are breathtaking. The levels of craftsmanship attained with simple, almost primitive, but ingenious tools are remarkable and have to be seen to be believed. The sheer artistry and antiquity of the place and the exhibits is mind-boggling. The terrace has a great view of Fez and a cafe where you can have a quiet cool drink. A nice respite from the chaos of the medina.
