Sadly, this museum is mostly empty now, but the collection is world-class. Come to enjoy a beautiful museum that is full of history and amazing treasures (including some of the largest mosaics in the world).

Go to the Bardo. Go to Tunis. Tunisia is magnificent and deserves every support from respectful visitors.

The building of the museum is a former palace that was renovated between 2009 and 2012 bringing modernity to the museum. The collection of ancient mosaics is breathtaking.Definitely worth a visit.

A ton of history is present at the museum. It's not huge, but large enough to keep you busy for few hours. They are closed ok Mondays.

The museum houses the most beautiful mosaic tile arts from the Roman times. It is a must to visit when in Tunis. The artwork seem like tapestries on the wall, it is amazing.
