We'd not read any of the reviews here, just a very enthusiastic write-up in our two-year old Rough Guide, since when even more has been added to M. Zaid's labour of love. Previous contributors have described this project very well, so we won't try to compete with them! We visited because we were touring the area, but would now advise... More

I nearly didn't turn off. It's a remarkable story of his a neglected series of lovely springs was brought back to life. The whole place is quite beautiful.

This small museum has a fascinating story and is well worth the small entrance fee. Mr Zaid, a local artist (calligraphy) and the curator of the museum, was a delightful host and showed us round each exhibit. I loved the philosophy of the place with its focus on the essential nature of water for life, and it is amazing to... More

An interesting kind of place. It started life as a watering hole, but then got forgotten and abandoned. The current manager, brought it back to life and repurposed it as an etnological museum. The collection is vast and the difference to other similar establishemts is that you have a very direct access to the objects, like very old stone arrow... More

This is an excellent museum, just to the west of Tinejdad on the N10 between Tinghir and Errachidia (look for the signs, the museum is a few hundred metres north of the main road). Lovingly put together by its curator, who also provides an excellent tour, it includes berber tools, costumes, jewellery and pottery, alongside stone age hand axes and... More
