If you like mosaics this is the best place to come as the world's best and biggest collection is there. Once you've seen this museum you don't need to bother going to any of the other ones that sell themselves as having mosaics. There's a few more items to see there but mosaics are the main purpose of it.

The Bardo musueum is in a nice building, with a mix of varied architeture styles according to th evarious epochs of building and extensions. The collection of tiled floors is simply amazing, and the other pièces on display give a glimpse of the local and regional history. To be improved: credit cards not accepted at the shop, and the signposting... More

This is one of the world's great museums. You cannot go to Tunis without visiting. The Roman mosaics are exceptional.

Historically rich and surprisingly well maintained. Courageous are the tunisian people who continue to oppose the scoundrels that are trying to bring their country down

Much has changed here since 2009, and another Islamic Museum next door is set to reopen before long. The Bardo is tops for Roman mosaics, with a small but impressive collection of Qallaline pottery and tiles and a high-class miscellany of classical and Islamic art.

You really need a good guide to make you travel across 3000 years of rich civilizations that ruled this tiny but great country. From prehistoric finds, you move to Phoenician times, Carthage, Roman era then Byzantines and Vandals to a complete change after the Arabs came to Tunisia in mid-seventh century. Rich mosaics, statues, sculptures, tiles, ceramics and artifacts of... More

This was the same museam that sadly there was an attack earlier this year that killed over 23 people. Outside the entrance you can see those killed, their names ands ages which is surreal. However don't let this put you off! This is a very interesting museam full of original mosaic and they now have security everywhere. Would recommend it... More

This museum had the most excellent mosaics and historical artifacts from Ancient Rome and great historical information about the history of Carthage. It is well organized and very manageable in two-three hours as an independent traveler.

Bardo was better than expected. Mosaic collection is second to none. New section does great job of displaying them uncluttered. Poignant reminder of the attacks with memorial out front and bullet damaged cases and room. Very sad.
