Photo & Description
The Bert Flint Museum is housed in a renovated Spanish-Moroccan-style building next to the famous Bahia and Dar Si Said palaces. The Bert Flint Museum was opened for visitors in 1996. It houses exhibits directly related to North Africa, which help to study the cultural history of this region.
Earlier, on the threshold of the twentieth century, a Dutchman Bert Flint, a teacher of history and art, lived in the house that houses the museum today. Travel enthusiast Bert Flint lived in this house for about 40 years. All this time he was in search of cultural objects and everyday life of the inhabitants of Morocco. The Dutchman became the founder of the first collection, which eventually served as the foundation for the creation of an entire museum.
Its collection is represented by jewelry, musical instruments, luxurious carpets and textiles, luxurious furniture, Berber national clothes, tools and wickerwork created by the hands of local artisans who lived in the Sahara Desert and the Sousse Valley. Bert Flint acquired many of the exhibits at the famous Marrakech bazaar. Particular attention is paid to the art and traditions of the Sahara and the Sousse Valley. It houses a collection of traditional Saharan hats and a rich collection of Moroccan sculpture and art. Each artifact in the Bert Flint Museum is numbered and marked with a specific location. The second half of the collection of this museum is located in Agadir.
Today, the Bert Flint Museum in Marrakech is a visual material for studying the history of crafts in Morocco.
