Hidden in an unassuming side street near the Bahia Palace this was a surprise. A treasure trove of cultural artefacts from around the Sahara. You will find clothing, statues, carpets, jewellery, horse saddles and fertility symbols from different ethnic groups. Housed in a building around a courtyard. It is on different floors with fairly steep stairs so may restrict access... More

Nice to find a small private museum which has an eclectic collection of collected pieces from around the sahara area, not just morrocco.

I saw the entrance price double what you would pay at the Musée de Marrakech, so we entered with high expectations and those where not met. We got a 15 page booklet stating from Marrakech to Tombouktou as a guide, which I thought is a joke. The collection is moderate, there is no theme, the exhibition technique is very basic,... More

Beautiful, quiet little museum with some gorgeous examples of textiles, crafts and utilitarian object made with great artisanry from not only locally, but all the Sahara trade routes. Plus, in a lovely riad. Liked it better than all other museums.

This fascinating museum hidden at the heart of the Medina seems to be frequently overlooked by tourists. It boasts an impressive collection of Berber artifacts including clothes, jewels and decorative objects which were gathered by Dutch anthropologist Bert Flint. Exhaustive explanations in English and Frech are displayed in each room, making it extremely interesting for those wishing to learn more... More

We are fans of West African masks and really enjoyed seeing the collection of masks and artifacts at the Musee Tiskiwin. This is an unusual and quirky museum that really highlights some fabulous artifacts and gives a sense of some aspects of the history of the caravan route that once passed through Morocco. Definitely worth a stop.

This museum was one of the cultural highlights of my trip to Marrakesh. The museum takes you on a trade route trip from the Atlas to the Sahara, West Africa and back- it is fantastic!

I loved this place so much. It exhibits a lot of items from the colection of the Dutch antropologist Bert Flint (who, by the way, was actually there). It's not only about the berber culture, it takes you in a trip as far as the Sub-Saharan Africa. It's a pity that the visit is self-guided and the explicative leaflet that... More

This museum has an incredible collection of artifacts of the tribal development of Morocco. It's small but lovingly collected and displayed in a more coherent fashion than many in Marrakech. It is really not to be missed but mostly unknown. You can find it easily by following the signs to the Dar Si Said museum as it is just 30... More

This little jewel box of a museum is worth the effort it takes to find it. It was the private home and collection of art and artifacts of a Dutch resident who was fascinated by the people of NW Africa. Wonderful examples from the Dogon people and other groups populating the area. The surrounding neighborhood has some of the best... More
