Went there last summer with my two little nieces and it was a wonderful experience. There were several collections of various objects dealing with Sahara desert: original military attires from all the armies crossing Sahara at different times, scientific and measuring tools, native clothes jewellery and handcraft, artifacts dating back to the stone age, and much more. The owner - a real desert enthusiast - is very welcoming and guided us through the exposition, sharing a lot of interesting details. He was very patient with the little girls and allowed them to move closer to some objets they were particularly interested in. I strongly recommend a visit to this museum: even if privately owned and not very renowned, le MUSEE SAHARIEN is impressive for the variety and the authenticity of its collections.
Prood of my father and what he has accomplished with this Museum. 20 years of passion, enthusiasm and perseverance...Congrats!...this place is unique and full of life
