1. The museum is OK. 2. The garden is a gem: small but with beautiful, old trees and plants 3. It contains one of the biggest oak tree I have ever seen and also a massive jacaranda. 4. The bird life is varied and interesting.

On our last morning in Fez, it rained so we decided to visit this small but lovely museum. The collection is limited but it is set in a lovely garden. The sign posts are in French and Arabic. Enjoyed strolling through.

Lovely museum, cheap entry. Amazing craftwork, beautiful garden. Would be even better with an investment to improve displays. Would be prepared to pay higher entry fee after that.

I remember really enjoying this museum some years ago and while the building itself and the gardens that provide the museum's setting remain lovely, the items in the museum are not well displayed or labelled and look a little jaded.

You will not be disappointed when visiting this once palace, now museum. The artifacts are very interesting, but I was mezmorized with the gardens and architecture as well. Definitely worth a visit.

This building is a former royal palace (Hassan I) from 19th century and then converted into a museum 100 years ago. Our guide said that the king himself did not stay here but it provided accommodation to royal guests. The museum is close to Bab...More

I had stumbled upon the Dar Batha Museum as it was a Monday and since the Jardin was closed I had been walking around Fes aimlessly. This propped up. Only a few dirhams to get into (maybe 10dh, 20dh, I'm awful at keeping track). Not...More

The building is beautiful. It’s very fresh and quiet with the garden in the middle. I was more interested with the architecture than the exhibit. Definitely still worth a visit if you want to get out from the bustle of the Médina.

When I was there in May of this year, it was open. They call it Musee Batha in Fes.
