Maison Tiskiwin is a beautiful ancient, late 19th century-early 20th century Moroccan house in Marrakech filled with personal artefacts from various Saharan countries including Morocco. The museum was founded by Dutch anthropologist Bert Flint, who is a wonderful walking odditie himself. Flint also lives in the house. I was quite struck by the original artifacts he has accumulated over the years, from arts, musical instruments, jewellery, pottery, carpets to furniture. Each room is designed in a completely different way and has a thousand and one night, far flung Arabian nights written all over it. Don’t forget to greet the owner when you’re there. He is history personified. Maison Tiskiwin offers a magical journey into the past, tucked away behind the Medina in the centre of Marrakech.
