The price was 11 Tunisian dinars which is about £4 so it was reasonably priced. There was a great collection of Roman mosaics and the museum, which used to be a palace, was very beautiful. I didn't feel like there was much more in the museum except a few bits and pieces of Roman statues. You can easily see everything... More

Beautiful art and architecture. A cool and calm place in the middle of a bustling city. Easy to reach by metro, with a little walking.

The building didn't look that much from the outside but inside we were blown away by the amount of mosaics and the sizes of them. We were whisked back in time and thoroughly enjoyed what we thought was going to be a short boring visit! How rude of us and how wrong. These mosaics are spectacular and beautifully preserved for...

The Bardo has a big new building with great Roman and early Christian mosaics, but many vacant display cases. Many items are on loan somewhere else.

The mosaics are unbelievable. A really well-curated museum. Unlike some of the other musea in Tunis, this has been done profesionally. It's also a lovely building. See especially the Virgil mosaic.

Stunning Roman Carthaginian collection of mosaics and statues. Museum sadly lacks information at each display point ; thank goodness we had our guide.Poor museum shop; no cafe; other museums do it so much better. Yet it is a very interesting collection.....

We enjoyed a trip to the Bardo Museum. If you like mosaics and a bit of history then you are in the right place. We went with a tour guide which was helpful and then for some lunch in a very nice restaurant.

I was blown away by the quality of this museum. You can see they've put a lot of effort into renovating and restoring this museum over the last few years. Its well laid out, easy to navigate and extremely rich with exhibits and history. If you want to understand Tunisia and it's history better of how it came to be... More

We visited here whilst we had a driver for the day. If you're into Roman history then it's a must do, if not then you can take it or leave it. There seemed to be a lot of the same and not much variety. Many of the rooms were just closed off. After an hour we felt we'd seen all... More
