Roman mosaics

This must be the best mosaic museum in the world. From the small to ones that cover the floor, if you're interested in Ancient roman artefacts this is a must

My favorite Roman mosaic museum unquestionably is the one in Gaziantep in southern Turkey, and there are many others in Italy that I have been to many times. But I have been coming here for decades, and I truly marvel every time I come here.

We visited the museum just a month after the massacre in March 2015 and chose to use a guide (highly recommended). There were still bullet holes in some of the display cases and the walls which was a little distressing but the artefacts were well displayed and the mosaics magnificent. We had visited Dougga immediately prior and had been to... More

We simply loved the museum. In time of little tourism and relatively short time after the attacks on the museum it was a special experience to be there. The shooting wholes in the glass monters reminded us of this. But the hundreds of mosaics are as always simply amazing. For us this is a museum you should not loose out... More

This is a great museum, with a world class collection of mosaics. Even for the uneducated like me, you cannot help but be impressed with the size, variety, skill, artistry ... and the living history. After initially "naah, too boring", I'm glad I did: I have been three times now. The bullet holes from the March 2015 Bardo museum attack... More

Amazing place - located in a palace that once belonged to the Bey (king) of Tunisia. The new extension financed by the World Bank is excellent, exhibits are very well exposed and even big mosaics can be admired in great detail. Very good exhibits on the history of Tunisia. Don't miss the Christian section showing baptismal fonts from early christianity.

Wonderful Roman mosaics as well as fascinating, and often beautiful Carthaginian artefacts from 7th century BC onwards. All very well displayed and instructively labelled..

World class museum of possibly the best Roman mosaics. Well laid out in a large modern museum. If in Tunis this is a must. Easily accessible by tram. Security now good. Take time to relax in the lovely garden after.

You haven't been to Tunis if you didn't visit Bardo Museum. It has the largest mosaic collection of the world. It's simply grandiose ! The museum does also include artefacts from all civilizations that have crossed the country, which are very many. I would recommend a guided tour to fully appreciate the historic value and significance of all that history.... More
