The museum was closed for renovation on the date of our visit (June 2019), so we paid the entrance ticket just to walk around the yard, where there is nothing really impressive to see. Just a few fragments of stone walls, fragments of mosaics, fragments...More

Entrance is included as part of the 12tnd ticket for all 8 of the main sites. Unfortunately, the museum was closed for renovation but the outside areas were still worth seeing especially for the impressive views of the city.

I think the actual museum will be "renovated" yet for a long time, but the views from the outdoor complex are outstanding. You can see Tunis, and also Sidi Bou Said on the other side.

Carthage National Museum is a national museum in Byrsa, Tunisia. The museum sits atop Byrsa Hill, in the heart of the city of Carthage. Lots of history of this historic place and its impact in our civilization.
