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

The Tiskiwin is the creation of a single man with a passion for the indigenous peoples of Morocco. In its vision and authenticity you can't beat it. It is intimate and fascinating, and if you are lucky, you will perhaps meet the museum's wonderful creator strolling through the exhibits. If you want to learn about the Berber peoples of Morocco,...

Nice little spot to explore time, regional and stylistic dimensions of Morocco. Not gaudy yet memorable.

With many choices of museum and buildings of history in Marrakech, this house provided me with the most unforgettable experience in my short stay in Marrakech. The collection of Bert Flint gathered over a number of years and presented as a cultural journey through the Sahara, High Atlas and beyond. It was a brilliant idea and the quality and diversity...

Lots of interesting Berber artefacts and exhibits from across the Sahara. There is an English guide booklet that you can borrow to look round which is a little helpful but could do with developing a bit more. Near the palaces so easy to pop into and doesn't take up too much time.
