It is a beautiful house that you get to wander around for as little as 4 dinar each. With items dating from 300 years ago, a high tower with a good view and an interesting information sheet in your language. Also finding it is really easy as there are many signs pointing you towards it, just inside the wall of... More

Well worth a visit. An amazing collection of textiles and patterns in this lovingly kept traditional home. Very inspiring for the creatives. Amazing views of the medina and Sousse from the roof too.

Gorgeous tiles and tortoises in the courtyard. While away half an hour in this lovely little traditional house - we went on a drizzly day and had the place to ourselves.

Lady on Ticket desk very helpful and offered an info sheet, on the house in English. Lovely to be able to look at how a family had lived in Sousse. Opportunity to walk up the Tower and look over the medina.

An easy way to spend a couple of hours it was really a magical place. The house is a fascinating insight into the lifestyle of the time and there is a little cafe on the roof although extremely windy and cool when we went up. Dirt cheap to get in they provide a translated info sheet. Some of the exhibits... More

This place is cheap as anything (it was like £4 for 2 of us) and the museum is interesting enough; it's basically laid out in a traditional Tunisian home. The real gem for us though was when we headed up onto the roof... there was a seating area with panoramic views of Sousse; absolutely stunning. If you hit them at... More

Very nice, interesting sightseeing place. Very good price for value (4 dinar) You will see a stylish tunisian house - many rooms, also you can climb up to the tower that indeed is almost as high as Ribat tower.

This is the most amazing place of the Sousse sights. It's a lovely little museum, used to be a house. It has so many furnitures preserved. A good symbol of the old Tunisian lifestyle. It just has a magical thing in air, with the light in the entrance and the curtains and the heavy mattresses. And you should certainly go... More
