A wonderful museum based on old desert wells with all kind of attributes of life in the desert and the Atlas Mountains. It has a nice collection of household items, handicraft and art. It was constructed and compiled by the artist Mr. Zaïd Abbou, who invested lots of time end energy, but at most his heart and values. As a... More

... it might sound like the bubbles rising through clear water in the central pool of this astonishing ethnographic, ecological, spiritual monument to one man's visionary purpose. If you travelled in southern Morocco and visited no other place than this, you would not have wasted your time. Fascinating and deeply moving.

Our guides did not know of this gem of a museum - it was only briefly described in our guide book. We stopped for a quick visit and spent over an hour listening to Zaid describe its origin, the history and customs it represents. Not only a remarkable experience, but Zaid is an artist as well. We bought some of... More

This doesn't look like much but the museum is absolutely worth the visit. It is a cultural experience, guided by the owner Zaid, who takes you through his impressive personal collection of Morrocan culture. The thematic visit is so, so enriching, ripe with unique pieces, and passionate commentary. Zaid is truly one of a kind, a man that has a... More

Zaid who created and is care taker for this amazing museum and desert spring source is so passionate about his culture and heritage that it is infectious. So many wonderful artefacts have been lovingly collected to give the visitor an insight into an ancient way of life continuing today in this area of Morocco.

We visited this after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. It was not part of our tour of Morocco but our driver agreed to take us. It was so cool to spend time out of the sun around the bubbling spring waters, listening to the owner telling us the history of the Berbers. The museum is quite unique and the owner was... More

We went road tripping this summer through morocco and the desert, and we had heard of this amazing man, Mr ZAID, who made it his life mission to save these natural sources and spent years building this museum. We decided to go check it out and I can tell you with all honesty, I've been to a lot of museums... More

Stumbled upon this open air museum in a hot afternoon and immediately felt its magic. This place is a celebration of the sacrality and of water and a rare example of how different religions can live together. Zaid walked us through and explained all the different parts: it seemed to us more of a experience, a ritual, than a normal... More
