This is a small unique museum tucked in the Médina of Marrakech. I enjoyed the backstory of the owner/museum founder and the collection of North African art, clothing and jewelry

A fun little museum containing cases of ethnographic artifacts from groups located along the old trade routes from Marrakech to Mali. The museum is in a historic house adding to its interest. Many great carved wooden doors occur throughout the exhibits along with other interesting artifacts. Worth a short visit when in the area.

A charming little place which one can easily get lost it (almost literally as the curated descriptions explaining the various exhibits sadly rarely matched any of the cases they were positioned next to). Nevertheless, rich on history and the cultural significance of many artefacts and precious items from the old Saharan caravan route from Marrakech to Mali. A beautiful little orange tree in the courtyard at the end. Curation could improve, but somehow it somehow lends itself to the charm of the place that the curation is so haphazard.

This is a museum that reflects the life of the North African and Berber people and has many unique artifacts. It is housed in a riad with a small courtyard. Worth a look if you have the time.

Housed in the home of pioneer ethnographer and collector Bert Flint (who can still from time to time be glimpsed on the premises), the Musee Tiskiwin is a rambling, eccentric but continually fascinating array of cultural artefacts. Prior knowledge of the desert cultures of North Africa and the Sahara is essential, as the cases provide little in the way of explanatory text (and none at all in English). Walking through the house is a bit akin to one of those cliche movie scenes where a character blows dust off an old book; years of neglect have taken their toll, but the singularity of the objects remains undimmed. Access to the most interesting galleries lies up a steep flight of stairs, so mobility issues must be considered for a visit.
