I liked this museum as it had different types of displays. Rather than an art museum, it was a cultural museum where they had window displays showing the different customs and rituals of the Berbers.

This is an interesting museum, but needs seriously updating. Very old fashioned manequinns which look like they've seen better days. Not every exhibit has an English translation. Visited as part of an organised day trip and would have been a little disappointed if i'd just vistied this museum.

Logically and well-laid out on a hilltop with views across the surrounding part of the island. There were a few really interesting bits in here and a friendly camel. Only criticism is that the format is a little 'samey', basically amount to lots of rooms with dummies in costume with a couple of paragraphs of information next to each.

We had visited the Synagogue at El Riadh then the remains at Meninx, and wondered on our way back to Houmt Souk whether it would be open on a quiet Monday in the first week of June. It was. Displays include baking, weaving and costumes for wedding ceremonies. The meaning of the details is also explained. A friendly guide introduced... More

I was on a organised trip and thoroughly enjoyed it and would return if I had the time. Very well laid out, give yourself at least 1-2 hours to appreciate all that is there.

Def worth a visit! Included in some local tours. Otherwise easy to reach with a taxi, just make sure your driver waits, otherwise u might get stuck, as taxis are easily... More

A well kept museum, well-laid out, depicting the culture and heritage of Djerba. Placards detailing every activity. In addition, the museum staff was very helpful in providing additional explanations. A very enjoyable and informative visit.
