Hôtel de l’Oasis Rouge

Museum in Timimoun

The Hôtel de l’Oasis Rouge, originally constructed by colonial missionaries in the early 1900s, is a fine old building and it is worth a wander around inside to see the arched hallways, the courtyard and the walls, which are decorated with traditional designs. The building is home to an interesting arts and culture centre with changing exhibitions and events. Next door is a one-room museum with fossils, rocks and prehistoric artifacts.
