despite what the western media has been mumbeling after the attacks, the place was well guarded, huge ! Mind blowing mosaics and very helpful staff, we'll definitely come back coz we didn't get enough time to finish the tour.

Unfortunately they are a bit slow in the repairs of the damaged don in the attack...one room I went in had a total of 21 bullet holes in the walls, display cases etc etc....a sad reminder... More

I visited there two weeks before the sad day. Actually, when I found this, there are two guardians with no caution, of course holding rifles. Anyway, it is the very big place displaying so many tiles from the ancient days. The most are explained in both french and english. Indeed, it is not ordered along the axis of time, so... More

You could say it is obscene to recommend it after the terrorist attack of 18 March, but a. It will be totally safe now and b. An act of solidarity. It is the home of an uncomparably stunning collection of antique mosaics.

An English speaking guide was available at the museum which really highlighted some of the displays and to appreciate it more. The history of the building (which was a palace) is just as interesting as the history displayed by the mosaic carpets which came from rich peoples' houses. It took us about a hour and 15 minutes to do the... More

An amazing collection, covering over 3000 years of history. From the Punic, the native civilization of the country to all the the ones that succeeded, the Romans, the Visigoths, the Byzantines, The Arabs, the Ottomans, the Italians, the Spanish, the French... Special mention to the antic mosaics, which the museum has an imposing collection.

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
