Funduq al-Najjarin (Arabic: فندق النجارين, lit. 'Inn of the carpenters') (also spelled Fondouk (el-)Nejjarine) is a historic funduq (a caravanserai or traditional inn) in Fes el Bali, the old medina quarter in the city of Fez, Morocco.
The funduq is situated in the heart of the medina, at Al-Najjarin Square (also: Nejjarine Square or Place Nejjarine), which is also notable for the Nejjarine Fountain, an attached saqayya or traditional public fountain. The building was designed for use by the merchants, traders, and visitors to the city of Fez and provided a storage place. It is a prominent example of Moroccan riad architecture. Today it houses a private museum, Le Musée Nejjarine des Arts et Métiers du Bois (Nejjarine Museum of Wooden Arts & Crafts).

It's a square in the middle of the Medina. You can see the tanneries from here. Very interesting and the people weren't TOO pushy.

This beautiful building provides a few excellent opportunities for photos of the architecture. At 20 dirhams, approx. $2, it is worth a quick 20 minutes. As well, it has some very decent bathrooms. The museum itself has a vast array of various articles in wood, as this is the "Carpenter's Museum." Don't neglect to go to the rooftop to enjoy a nice overlook of the medina. As well, they serve mint tea or sodas on the rooftop.
