“Well-organized, intelligent museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

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 takes the visitor on a journey through the mseaum as if it was also a journey around Western Africa. This museum is the home of noted anthropologist Flint, who still lives in Marrakesh.

“Endless Berber history and artefacts....worthwhile visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

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.

“Perfect for the anthropologist in you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This Berber museum belongs to the Dutch anthropologist, Bert Flint. It is located in his riad, in the southern Medina. The collection is vast. On the entry you'll be given a guide to read as you walk trough the rooms. Very interesting and a must see.

“Interesting collection of artifacts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Good value for money. Lots of artifacts to see in this private collection. We went here after Dar Si Saad as close by and then on to the palaces and Saadian tombs. All manageable in a morning.

“Interesting, private museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

This private museum is set up to show the artifacts and cultures you would come across on a trek across the Sahara. Each room focuses on a different region or tribe, showcasing the wealth of cultures and traditions Morocco has to offer.

Although small, we spent a good hour exploring the exhibition, aided by the museum's little guide booklet, which was admittedly not that informative - I was glad I could read the original French text next to the various artifacts.

Yet, the museum gave a fascinating glimpse into what is there to explore and sure made me wish I could follow the route myself.
