“Do not miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Very interesting with an English folder at reception with details of all the rooms. Luckily had the chance to meet the man who had set up the museum and collected the items on display. Quite by chance he was there on the morning we visited the museum - lovely old chap.

“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Good collection of artefacts relating to the tribes of northern Africa. The handouts are a little hard to follow but the exhibits at this, smallish, museum are worth the £1 (!) admission fee.

“A revelation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

This museum was the home of a Dutchman who spent decades tracing the progress of art in artefacts into and around the Sahara. The quality of work in metal, leather, wood and ceramic is stunning to see as you track his progress in his search for exhibits.

“Our favourite visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

This exciting little Moroccan Spanish former home with its inner courtyard and the sense of history is a pleasure to be in never mind the extraordinary collection by the Dutchman Bert Flint. Hardly any visitors when we were there made it special and we could take our time.
