Maison Tiskiwin is an art museum that is housed in a traditional late 19th century - early 20th century Moroccan dwelling. It was established by Bert Flint, a dutch anthropologist and art historian who settled in Maison Tiskiwin in 1950 and later decided to create a museum in the building. Over the years, Flint collected plenty of Moroccan art, carpets, furniture, artifacts, sculptures, musical instruments, jewelry, pottery, and traditional Moroccan decor, with an emphasis on items from the southern region of the country. Visitors can enjoy Moroccan design and architecture in different rooms in the house which display traditional carpets, pottery and Moroccan Zellij (hand cut polychrome tiles typical to Morocco).
