Was there several times, very interesting area to see, how the Bay of Sousse lived with his family, just 50years ago. Very special flair, nice and polite owners. Great view above Sousse. You can get a small explaining flyer at the entrance, which I would recommend to understand what you see. Really worth going. Take your time and dip into... More

For what you pay? It is a great deal. It is chock a block full of artifacts. You get a good sense of how people actually lived and carried on their lives.

Although a small museum visit highly recommended. Staff at entrance ever so helpful and also invited us to look round the main building which is still being renovated.

We really enjoyed our visit! The interior of this place is amazing, the time work is beautiful and is a gorgeous place to walk round! There is a cafe at the top of the museum and although it was closed when we were there the views and shady area is a lovely place for having rest from the heat. All... More

This was the first museum we found in Sousse, I almost wish we'd found it last as none of the others seemed as good! Great value for money and well worth paying the extra dinar to take photos it's a traditional middle class Tunisian home, we were given a guide sheet (available in a variety of languages) which was helpful...

This is a nice museum for you to see 'How they used to live' and at a cost of 4 Dinars (around £1:32 GBP per person) it is very reasonable. Ask for a sheet in your preferred language - I had English, which gives you a brief description of each room and some of the objects and their provenance etc.... More

Fascinating insight into a middle class Tunisian home in the early 20th century. Packed with interesting items with an informative fact sheet supplied. Make sure you climb to the top of the tower ( a bit difficult ) for magnificent views over the Medina and out to sea. Highly recommended.

You can get around this small museum in about 10 minutes, and that's experiencing just about everything. Its worth it though and cheap too

We tried to gain entrance to this small museum after reading about it in The Lonely Planet Guide book ( an excellent book ) but found it closed but as I really wanted to see it we returned later and found it open so I can only assume that it closes for lunch The entry cost is 4 dinar.
