How to get there

Located in the historic Medina of Fez, the museum can be difficult to find if you don't know where you're going. The most convenient way to get there is by walking or taking a taxi. If you are coming from outside the medina, you can take a taxi to the Bab Boujloud gate and then walk the rest of the way. Take a winding stroll through the bustling streets of the medina until you come upon Nejjarine Square. From there, climb the decorated stairway to find the museum.
