Housed in an Andalusian palace called Dar Batha that was built in the late 19th century, the Museum of Moroccan Arts displays a collection of native folk art and crafts. Fez is especially famous for its ceramics, and visitors can view china painted with intricate and colorful geometric patterns as well as rustic earthenware pottery. Other exhibits include Berber carpets, ancient copies of the Koran, gold-stitched embroidery, and navigational tools from as early as the 11th century.
