Loved seeing the large crocs and the turtles. There was an area that had smaller crocodiles and we saw them being fed but unfortunately had to leave before the big ones were fed.

We popped in here before the Crocodile Park, as it is part of the same complex. Make sure you take a French/English dictionary to make heads or tails of the plaques describing museum exhibits.

Very surprised how much work had been put into this museum and the costumes on the dummies through the ages were fantastic. Plenty of space to view each window and photography allowed. Delightful visit and would definitely return.

Many traditional costumes, a glimpse on the Tunisien culture. No entry fee, but you have to pay 2 dinars to take photos. And if you like to give a present to the personal inside (those next to the camels, one that will dress the women in traditional clothes)

We have seen many ancient ruins and mosaics but this museum is about traditional Tunisia -- I thoroughly enjoyed it. The diorama-style exhibits show traditional wedding customs and costumes, daily life, crafts, music and so forth. I think it is really worth a visit.
