As there is no seaside or night life on the coast (being a Moslem country) just miles and miles and MILES of empty beach......nice little museum with interesting ethnic stuff inside and a tomb outside of someone who had mental health problems (?) it's also next door to a Crusader fort right strategically built on the sea's edge. And discovered... More

Very well organised - rooms are numbered and all exhibits are described in several languages. Good insight into the history and traditions of Djerba

We went here on an afternoon and yeah I guess you can say we found out a few interesting things about the djerban culture, but it was quite dry and really nothing special. The heritage museum at Djerba explore has way more to offer!

Well managed,gives you a full picture of traditional life in a very pleasant setting. With a little more dust polishing would be perfect.

This small museum is worth a visit if you happen to visit Houmt Souk. It gives you a good idea about traditions and costumes of this small multi-ethnical island with a very rich island from the Berbers, to the Phenicians, Romans, Bizantians, Vandals, Arabs, Ottomans, Frenchs.

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. After this we... More

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.
