Beautiful, tranquil small museum. Definitely go! Make friends with the staff and they might just open a few locked doors for you!

Worth going for the building & grounds
Dec 2018 • Couples
I will echo what others mentioned below: unless you have an interest in archaeology/prehistory or ethnomusicology, the museum proper isn’t for you. But definitely go for the building and grounds as they have restored this to the good old days. Interesting architecture & crafts on display. An employee explained as he showed us around (in Arabic, my husband translated for me) the palace. The actual museum held displays on the prehistory of Algeria & musical instruments from Africa. The display descriptions are in Arabic & French. The admission charge is no longer free: it was 200 DA (approximately US $1.80).

I spent quite a whils at this location which along with being a Historical Building Museaum acts as a gallery for Art exhibitions . A great blend of old and new.

The villa and gardens are superb
Apr 2018 • Solo
It is unclear when and by whom the Bardo villa was constructed, but it appears to show strong Tunisian influences, particularly in its Qallaline tile-panels. The building and grounds are enchanting, while the somewhat subterranean museum of prehistory will interest some more than others. Not to be missed in a visit to Algiers!

For us, more about the architecture than the museum, but YMMV
Aug 2017 • Friends
We came and were not super interested in the museum, though I'm sure some people would like it. We accidentally found the amazing house and upstairs rooms when we used the restrooms after seeing the museum-- it's up the hill from the museum entrance. Beautiful, amazing house!

The building surpasses the museum
May 2017 • Solo
I love museums, this one was ok... layout and flow was good, artifacts were sparse but there was a lot of good text (in Arabic and French).

The second exhibit focussed on the loss and desecration of historical places and artifacts. This was well put together albeit all in photographs from around the world, there was English text here.

However, what I was NOT expecting was to turn the corner and enter the most elaborate and beautiful building. Loads of typical coloured tiles and many many rooms of different purposes - glorious!

The staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely add this to your list if here for only 1 day, I went alone and it took me 90 minutes.

There are very few tourist attractions in Algiers this a good one of the rare few... you could also organize functions or reception for business there...
