When the taxi dropped us off.. I thought a mistake had been made. The building is in the middle of the true city (not a touristy spot, as far as I could tell) and fairly unassuming from the entrance...But step inside and WOW! Step in further....AMAZING!

It is easy to get n with taxi. Not accept more than 6 dinars from the center to museum. Inside very precious Greek repert at 1 floor. The harem is fascinating and very impressive. The location and the exposition are beautiful. Ask for the free guide. Everityng become more clear and Intresting. Takes 2 hours to visit the museum.

Having visited Carthage yesterday, we were unprepared for the sheer scale and quality/quantity of mosaics. assumed the ones on floor we walked across were recreations but no! The underwater treasures from Mahdia were truly amazing.

A fantastic museum, really a must see while in Tunis. The amount of mosaics is amazing, I heard they had a vast collection but never imagined what a fantastic amount of mosaics and such a beautiful display. A world class museum.
