A excellent view of 2nd & 3rd AD mosaics. The 2nd AD are in better condition. Not to say the 3rd AD are not of Interest. This museum is based in an old building but with modern design allowing natural light in to enhance the mosacis. This Museum. Its located north east of the old medina. Well worth the effort... More

A very nicely displayed set of mosaics in a newly revamped building in a corner of the medina. Some of the exhibits are really exceptional (both in quality of preservation and design) when compared to the Roman mosaics one might see in many European museums. Entrance fee is quite modest.

Having been to the Bardo museum in Tunis, the one in sousee is very much the poor relation. I didnt stay long, boredom setting... More

It's well worth a visit to see an amazing collection of huge floor and wall mosaics! It's situated in the old Kasbah which is quite an imposing building in Sousse.

Intereasting, the mosaics were excellent. The lifts were not working but this was not a problem for us but for other people it would be.
