Whilst the Bardo Museum is still is the stage of construction, it is very well worthwhile visiting. The mosaics are certainly the best to be seen anywhere in Tunisia, and they are set out so that they can be fully appreciated. Every stage of Tunisia's history is displayed in a setting that befits, and many of the artefacts are almost... More

Really impressive museum with a fantastic collection of huge mosaics and I had a well informed helpful guide. I went there alone on the tram from Tunis. It was quite easy as the tram station is just opposite the main train station.

OK - I love all aspects of Roman history but the mosaics in this museum are the finest you will see in the world - including Rome, Pompeii, Ephesus. They are all remarkably well preserved and presented beautifully in a 13th century palace (all the ceilings of the palace have been restored so be sure to look up in the... More

If you like Mosaics, this is your place. Perhaps you will find there more mosaics than what you will find in Rome or Greece. What is impressive is that the mosaic in Tunisia is well kept and preserved, some of them look almost untouched. We combined our trip to Bardo Museum with a visit to the national craft shop. It...

This amazing museum is housed inside of a 13th-century palace, which is located in the suburbs of Tunis. It contains a vast collection of Roman mosaics and other antiquities from Ancient Greece, Tunisia, and the Islamic period. Very well laid out and really peaceful. Since it's so big, it doesn't feel crowded even if there are a lot of people.... More

This museum has the best collection of ancient mosaics in the world - the world. It is worth a trip to Tunis just to see this museum, along with the ruins in Carthage. The museum is not air conditioned, and there was no cafe, so it's not good for an all-day visit. But, the bathrooms are clean. The museum is... More

Although not usually a museum fan, this one is worth a visit. It's a 10 - 15 minute taxi ride from the medina and should cost 5 - 6 dinars. The collection of mosaics are stunning.

It is a must! Very impressive collection and great design of the museum itself. We aware of the taxi drivers all over Tunis, 3/4 will try to over charge by ridiculous amounts. One asked 30 euros for a 5 dollar trip. We obviously didn't take it, but be conscious that it happens.
