Tiskiwin Museum

The Tiskiwin Museum exhibits unique works such as textiles, basket works, jewelery, carpets and other things from various regions including the sub-Sahara.


 It is owned by Dutch anthropologist, Bert Flint who also collects art from the Sahara, Morocco and North Africa, which are on display.
 The museum is housed in a large building constructed at the turn of the century, in a Spanish-Moroccan style.
