A must-see museum in Marrakech
The Bert Flint Museum is located on one of the routes between the Mellah and Jemaa El Fna Square, near the Dar Si Said Museum. It contains a magnificent collection of objects from the regions surrounding the Sahara, such as Morocco, Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso.
Bert Flint, the initiator of this museum
The Bert Flint Museum (Tiskiwin) was born out of Bert Flint's passion. After his art history studies, this Dutchman quickly became interested in Spanish Muslim culture. After exploring and travelling all over the world, he went to Morocco in 1954.
Having fallen in love at first sight with the Marrakchi way of life, he decided to settle there in 1957. This plunge into Moroccan life aroused his interest and curiosity. He became interested in the visual and musical manifestations of the Moroccan rural world. As time goes by, he documents himself, in particular on the deep links that unite Morocco to the Sahara and Africa.
Tiskiwin, the art of adornment
The Tiskiwin Museum was born out of his love for this rural culture and his research. Here you can discover a path and a common thread, that of the Art of Ornament.
