This museum houses the largest collection of Rom, an mosaics in the world, very well displayed and lit, of incredible lifelikeness - unlike less refined mosaics, many of the ppl or Gods depicted in the best works have actual personalities and you feel you can sense their emotions as in photos taken by an expert portraitist.

Security is evident at the museum but not so obtrusive as to spoil your visit to this incredible place. Have never seen so many beautiful mosaics. The building itself is a museum having gone through many renovations and restorations over the centuries. The ancient mosaics and artifacts cover all the important periods of the North Africa region and show a... More

On a rainy day, our guide takes us to the Bardo museum, a miracle of ancient mosaics and Roman statues. Our guide rushes us through the ground floor of the museum and when I inquire about the other two floors he lies without blinking that they are both empty! The museum has one of the richest collections of ancient mosaics.... More

We had no idea about it before. But really we are under the impression. How they did things like that many many years ago. You cannot describe but only experience.

It is worth the detour. Never saw this number of mosaics in one place. I really liked it a lot. The old palace itself has some rooms that are worth seen (music room, harem, etc.) Careful. It closes early (16:00 or 16:30) as you need to see them with the day light.

We had a guided tour through the museum and we were fascinated. The museum offers a lot of great restored historical art such as mosaics, pottery, sarcophagus and statues and the guide told us a lot about the Tunesian history and the history of some pieces of art in the museum. I can definitely recommend this place to anyone who's... More

So glad we went to The Bardo. I was nervous about going but was reassured by the obvious presence of security. The museum is amazing and for 1 dinar you can take as many photos as you want. My only gripe and the reason for 4* is the lack of a tea/coffee area. Just a slot machine selling fruit drinks.... More
