This is one of the most impressive ethnological museums I've ever been to. The collection is extensive, the notes are extremely well written and informative, and it permanently altered my understanding of the cultures in and around the Sahara. One caution - the building would be impossible to navigate for anyone requiring handicap accessibility.

A very relaxed atmosphere, very interesting collection of sculptures and other decorative objects, a very nice place on the ground floor to sit and relax and it is very affordable!

One of the more intriguing ethnographic collections you can find on the planet. Its layout offers the visitor a fascinating tour from Marrakech to the Touareg region of Algeria and Niger and on to Mali and Timbuktu before heading back to Morocco via Mauritania. It's truly spectacular, and as there is so much material to absorb do not attempt to... More

The museum reflects the passion of its founder Bert Flint. It was pretty incredible to meet him and then witness the treasures he has accumulated and displayed. This is less of a museum and more of a time capsule revealing the powerful and vibrant cultures of the region through extraordinary artefacts. A small yet incredibly rich museum. Fabulous!

Fascinating and beautiful old house. The exhibits are displayed as if one is on a tour from Marrakech to Timbuktou, with lots of interesting items and good information sheets. Gives a real sense of history. Virtually empty when we were there so we could really soak it all up.

A museum beautifully placed in a riad. They'll provide you a handbook and you'll pretty much have a DIY tour.

We made a point of seeing this museum, and were disappointed to find it closed. However, a bit of persistant knocking brought out the guardian in the end! We were the only visitors. A very interesting collection of old Moroccan artifacts, all housed in an old traditional house arranged round courtyards. Well worth a visit.

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
