If magical Morocco has motivated you to travel on, perhaps deep into the Sahara Desert, or even to Timbuktu, then don’t miss the chance to indulge your itchy feet at Maison Tiskiwin. This very special private art collection, or small museum, showcases Moroccan and African indigenous crafts, from Tuareg leather camel saddles to antique carpets.
Owned by Dutch anthropologist Bert Flint, who has resided in Marrakech since the 1950’s, this tiny space has a homely feel to it with traditional décor and the occasional smell of delicious home-cooked food. The exhibitions are easy enough to follow and are arranged geographically by Flint who manages the museum himself. If you’re keen, there is also commentary available in multiple languages.
We ought to say too that we think this museum should come with a warning ‘might inspire serious wanderlust!’
Tucked between the Bahia and Dar Si Said Palaces: 8 Rue de la Bahia, opening hours: 9.30am-12.30pm & 3-5.30pm.
