Fodor's Expert Review Musée Nejjarine des Arts et Métiers du Bois

Fez el-Bali Museum/Gallery

The 14th-century Nejjarine fondouk, or Inn of the Carpenters, is now home to a fascinating museum. The three-story patio displays Morocco's various native woods, 18th- and 19th-century woodworking tools, and a series of antique wooden doors and pieces of furniture. For 10 DH enjoy mint tea on the rooftop terrace with panoramic views over the medina. Don't miss the former jail cell on the ground floor, or the large set of weighing scales, a reminder of the building's original functions—commerce on the ground floor and lodging on the levels above. Check out the palatial, cedar-ceiling public bathrooms, certainly the finest of their kind in Fez.
