Fantastic museum. The Roman mosaics are fabulous. The workmanship of the mosaic workers from almost 2000 years ago is simply outstanding. I think the bath that is mentioned in earlier reviews is in fact an early Christian baptismal pool. My personal favourite is the mosaic of the head of the god Oceanus. Do not go to this museum without paying... More

The ticket costs 9 dinars. Extra ticket for permission to photograph and use the camera costs 1 dinar. In the museum we see a large collection of mosaics. Interesting is the bathtub made ​​of mosaics. There is also an elevator.

The Sousse Museum is really a treasure with an extensive collection of North African mosaics from the Roman and Byzantine periods. I came to Tunisia specifically to go to this museum, and it did not let me down. The museum is very modern, with labels in Arabic, French, and English. Mosaics are largely displayed on the walls, but some large... More

There are some great mosaics and there is a fantastic view of the city, but the layout is a bit weird. When you are outside above the gallery space, there are stairwells that lead to offices. We thought the rooms were more galleries but when we got up the stairs, there were people working in there! That aside, the mosaics... More

What an amazing place - we took my 8 year old daughter who was mesmerised by the beautiful mosaics. Such a shame that the Thomson hotel rep doesn't tell anyone about it! The museum is clean, informative and air conditioned. On the site which was the original kasbah are wonderful views of Sousse. Well worth a visit!

One of the top attractions there. It was a bid hard to find it, because it is placed in Medina, and if you go there it is very hard to orientate only with a map, need to have gps

Small and well maintained museum with amazing mosaics - so very beautiful. They must have looked so lovely in their original houses…particularly liked the one of the Nilotic scene with the peasants pulling a donkey out of the crocodile's mouth! Some fine tigers too. Very plesant place in the heat of the day - we walked up through the medina,... More
