The building is nice, being a former palace. But its contents is very disappointing. There could be so many more beautiful and interesting objects exposed to the public and many more explanations offered.

This museum is small, but nice. I was not overly impressed with the artwork, but rather the architecture. The design of the building itself was vibrant and colorful. If you're already walking in the souks it would not hurt to get out of to sun to stop in and see this museum. You will get some great selfies.

All the articles are mainly in French. There is a lot of pottery & jewellery but nothing that explains the history in depth.

Not much to see and more expensive than the rest of the landmarks. Nice building but again no signs in english to appreciate what you see. If you find yourself close, I suggest visit the Madrassa instead

Compared to other museums this is expensive and less interesting. The building is the main attraction - a restored palatial residence. I would see other attractions before this one.

We enjoyed the building and found the music being played very soothing, along with the fountains. You can be at peace in this place while outside the world rushes by. The artwork was interesting but not so much to see. I really liked the paintings in the hammer section and the swords. This is a good way to see the... More

I'll start by saying this is a palace converted into a museum, it has some very interesting artifacts, worth a visit, but what I find outrageous is that you pay 50 D for entry, and if by any chance you are unlucky to need to use the toilet there, there's a lady waiting to collect extra (hence my rating). Look... More

The building its self is great. But as a museum it really doesn't have that much to offer. We were going by while in the Souks so we went in. Otherwise I wouldn't make a special trip to see it.

The museum has a nice small collection of pieces housed in a well restored palace. Worth visiting while in the Ben Youssef Medersa and the Museum of Photography area.
