If there was enough signage the visit would have been greater. But I, with friends, made sure we visit all the halls and see most of the contents of the museum. Here you find Rome, Cairo, Istanbul fingerprints along with Berber heritage. Tunisia was the perfect location for Civilizations to meet, influence each other and fight. Judaic, Christian and Islamic... More

Plus bullet holes that demonstrate that unfortunately senseless violence lives right alongside beauty. The museum is a truly great one if you appreciate ROMAN ANTIQUITIES. The Tunisian people are rightfully proud of this museum. Support them by visiting it and their country.

Fab museum and quite breathtaking to see the collection of ancient relics from the area. The museum itself is modern, clean, has helpful information in multiple languages and the staff were friendly and Cleary wanted visitors to have the best experience.

The Bardo Museum comprises statues from the Romanian period and Phoenician periods in Tunisia but is specially known as the largest Mosaic Museum in the world. This art prevailed in this roman proconsular region of North Africa.

Maybe this was because too many items were "Exhibited in Leiden", maybe because I'm just not a fan of mosaics, but the general impression was not that good, as I expected.

Practically empty when I visited lasted year, very large in size with some spectacular exhibits. Wasn't keen on some of the locals disguising themselves as museum guides only to then demand payment for showing you roped off exhibits that they exploiting the museum from. Ticket price was extremely high and how local people afford to visit is beyond me. I'd... More

Bardo is the most famous museum of Tunisia, well known for its exceptional collection of mosaics. It also presents a large variety of other archaeological remains that trace the history of Tunisia over several millennia and across multiple civilizations. Bardo is the second museum in Africa after the Egyptian museum in Cairo. After the recent attacks, the place is now... More
