Located at the rear of the huge medina in sousse, the archaelogical museum promises a fascinating glimpse of the past. As a lover of history, i was tempted. I have to say that i was disappointed.

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.

This museum is located in the Sousse Kasbah, the 11th C fortress which takes up the south west corner of the medina. It contains a wealth of large mosaics from the numerous roman ruins which dot this part of the Tunisian coast. Look for the Triumph of Neptune, and the god Oceanus. Entry is 9 Dinar and costs extra to... More
