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

This is such a small museum hidden away alongside the wall of the Medina. It only costs 4 Dinars with another Dinar to take photos – make sure you pay this. Now you will be able to find out how people used to live in the past, the rooms are packed, colourful and spectacular. The help guide could do with... More

We visited only after finding it on Trip advisor. And thank god for that. Superb place, it even has a hole in a wall for a roman lamp which timed the male owners time with his wives :) fantastic arfifacts. The tower allows you to see around medina. I would have read more about its history and function - perhaps... More
