We visited these attractions in August, 2014. We set off late afternoon when cooler. Good time to go to Crocodile Farm because they are fed around 4pm. Few hundred crocs lazing around doing nothing...until feeding time! After this we visited the museum. Quite interesting and very well looked after. Have to say, the toilets were very clean.

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.

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.
