This is a small but perfectly formed museum. Rather than a formal museum, it's more a collection of interesting artefacts from a seasoned adventurer. The rooms are small and winding, and the artefacts are presented thoughtfully. Undisputedly my favourite museum in Marrakech

This museum is okay for a brief visit. As another reviewer has commented the guide books do rave about this place but you are left feeling disappointed. Whilst there are a few interesting exhibits all the accompanying information is provided in french only. Access is also poor for anyone with mobility issues.

A difficult to find little gem, nothing exciting but well worth a visit, check opening times as it closes for a while around lunchtime. Exhibitions of traditional wooden doors and abject says well as clothing and other artifacts including old instruments.

Gave a good idea and background to Morocco and Africa . Loved the exhibits - completely different to anything I have seen before. Not like museums we are used to but charming in its way. NOT touristy at all.

Don't miss this excellent little museum, full of fascinating artefacts and information about Berber life. The detailed pamphlet handed out helps to make sure you understand what you are looking at - great fro children and a real contrast to large empty palaces.

This collection is capable to bring you to Timbuctu and back. Somehow along the path you can get lost..but do not be scared..you will find your way through the African links of Marrakech..

Make sure not to miss this place if you're going to Bahia Palace. It can be a bit tricky to find, as it's down a side street. The museum is full of artefacts not only from Morocco but all over North Africa. Admission includes a booklet with information on the artefacts in each room. The building itself is also a... More

The Maison Tiskiwin is most unusual as a museum and it is well worth visiting, if only for the wealth of materials available on the area around marrakesh and the grand circle of the berber trails, which passed as far south as the Niger. There are implements from several African tribes and a well-written documentary approach to the different rooms... More

You'll need some directions to find this fascinating museum of Berber life. The building itself is a traditonal design. Its worthwhile visiting as part of a guided tour.
