The Musee Tiskiwin is one man's collection of items from his travels from Timbuktu to Marrakech. It is eclectic and displayed on a room by room basis representing each stop on the trip. There is an explanatory booklet provided which takes almost as much navigating...More

This is a private collection of northwest african art and handicrafts. It has pieces from Morocco, Mali and Niger. The collection is quite impressive and instructive and, as usual in Marrakech its set in a beautiful building

An exciting Moroccan, former home with its inner courtyard gave a real sense of history. A great tour through the tribes of the Sub Sahara, with an extensive collection of artifacts displayed well. Lots to see and worth the time.

I enjoyed this attraction! It isn't very big at all so around an hour would be plenty of time to visit. Inside there are cabinets with all historic things inside such as jewellery and clothing. My friend and I visited as part of a discovery...More
