Wow loved this place! Went in Ramadan and we were the only people there. It was very well kept and amazing to see how the man who owned this house lived. Very romantic and plush in here. I found it facinating to learn about the different rooms and how they lived here. The roof terrace is a nice escape from... More

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
