The Basics

The museum’s permanent exhibits are the personal collection of Dutch anthropologist Bert Flint. Displays are organized geographically, with each room marking a destination along the ancient Saharan trade route from Marrakech to Timbuktu. The colorful objects on display include hand-woven carpets and textiles, traditional Berber clothing and jewelry, intricate basketwork, and tribal handicrafts. Among the highlights are a re-creation of a Berber encampment, examples of Saharan headwear, and an impressive collection of Moroccan artworks.

Marrakech’s Best Museums

Most of Marrakech’s museums can be found in the medina and are within walking distance of the Tiskiwin Museum. The Museum of Marrakech houses Moroccan art and artifacts, while the Photography Museum displays impressive photos of historic Marrakech, and the Museum of the Palmery combines beautiful gardens with traditional art. Outside the medina, the Berber Museum in the Majorelle Garden is also worth a visit.
