The museum is a fantastic place to visit, starting with the striking entrance. Inside you will pay 9 Dinars and an additional 1 Dinar to be allowed to use your camera (why wouldn’t you pay for this?) the main part of the museum is underground in a really well air conditioned area. How many mosaics have you ever seen before... More

Well worth a visit to this newly located museum. The exhibits are works of art from history. Not the easiest place to find but the hotel reception will give you directions

Depends if you like this sort of thing. Can be quite boring and not all parts of the museum are open to the public.

Our visit to Sousse Archeological Museum was one of the highlights of our holiday.I was last in Sousse 15 years ago and I don't recall this museum being there so visiting it now in it's fine form filled all our cultural needs at a very reasonable entrance fee,though we were bemused to observe the staff shadowing guests who hadn't purchased...
