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.

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.

This is a gem. Its a beautifully preserved house giving real insight into the life of a wealthy family in Sousse over many generations. Its quite small so won't take that long to go around. Our kids (5 and 8) thought it was fascinating. Great views of the medina from the roof. Very inexpensive.

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
