This museum has the best location ever on this island. In a lovely village, on the top of the hill, in a beautiful building. View on basically everything nearby including the sea. The exhibition leads you through the history and traditions of the island, very well organized rooms, and interesting artifacts. DO NOT MISS IT! The old camel outside is... More

Placed inside a wonderful building and containing a wonderful interior this place offers a trip over tunisian habits and costumes. By visiting this place you well get a different view over Djerba since it is located on one of Djerba highest spots.

Most of the... More

A couple of other reviews have mentioned this in passing but this visit was ruined by the discovery of the live camel in a cave, turning a recreated olive oil press, without even any olives. All the other exhibits are wax works and depict traditional ceremonies and clothing, with a strong emphasis on marriage. There are English translations of each... More

This shows all aspects of Berber life using room settings with models. The costumes were brilliant and the museum was in a lovely setting.

Designed with care to tell the story of traditional ways of life. The exhibits themselves were not the main attraction for me - the building is stunning, with courtyards and flowers all over. The view is great and it is a lovely way to pass a few hours learning about the culture. Recommended.

Ok place but nothing super special. A little bit confusing where to walk and not to walk. We did not have a guide.

The Museum is located on a hill with beautiful views on a splendid building. The Museum is small but authentic and genuine regarding de Djerbian culture. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended. In pristine condition. Very detailed; lots of info including in English. I learnt so much here and loved the individual exhibitions staging various rituals from circumcision to pre-wedding customs. The costumes are fascinating and I would have loved to have been able to buy some of the fabric. The Guellala Museum is exceptionally well-maintained. If you go to... More

The place is really big and it shows a lot of the country's culture through several exhibitions. Apart from the entrance you need 2DT for the right of photo.
