Great place, cheap to get in. Intersting to see the mosaics. Spent around an hour here. AS we went during Ramadan it was very quiet, as were most tourist attractions, which was great. WE only saw two other people there. Ramadan is an excellent time to go to Tunisia. Quiet, cheaper and a very special time for the Tunisian people.... More

Really relaxing and scenario atmosphere inside and outside the museum. It also surrounded by residential areas, where you can experience the normal Tunisians lifestyle.

Nice quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Doesn't have the "workers" standing around to show you something then asking you for money! I paid the extra few Dinar to take photos and I think it was worth it. A lovely building with some lovely ladies at the entrance who were polite and happy and a lovely mosaic of the Medusa but I... More

A nice museum that consists mostly of mosaics. Some are very impressive and it is well worth the visit. You can work your way around the whole museum in a couple of hours maximum and is a nice place to visit before or after going to the medina for some shopping.

Another excellent maintained archaeological site which offers good info/history and most excellent views from the top of the building. Bring a torch for going up the crooked staircase and a camera for those stunning views. Can be noisy early on when tour groups visit so mid morning/afternoon would be good.

This is a lovely building in its own right and has many ancient artifacts within its walls. It is part of the walled Medina and is well worth a visit.
