There is still plenty to see and do outside. A few ruins and spots for pics. But the ticket you buy gets you in to all the sites in the area. The roman theater, the baths, villas, etc. Early or late evening is best as...More

We were told it was closed due to renovations and would be for several months Very little appeared to be happening. We still had a worthwhile time by looking at the limited remains of the capital including Punic housing and a few pieces of marble....More

The museum itself is currently closed for refurbishment. You can still access the grounds with the standard Carthage ruins ticket which has a collection of statues and some larger objects out. Signage is very limited in general and even more so in english

Did a quick walk around this place. There is not a lot to see, especially if you are going to be traveling to sites outside of Tunis. The place is well maintained and the Museum itself had a few interesting pieces in it. Remember that...More

Untouched and unkept to a point. You will see some of the most historic and fine pieces of the earth here. The culture and history of pieces they have are really collective and worth a visit. The history of this city is amazing and this...More

If you are in Tunisia, you should not miss this museum. It is located on what is believed to be the berth of the Carthage -Punic civilization, with a 360 views from the hills over the Mediterranean, the Lake and the city. Be sure to...More

The ruins are something to see but the museum has nothing exceptional and felt like a scam. At 3£ per person it wasn’t expensive but a waste of time as the history is all outside in the ruins

Our guide was indifferent, but if we had not gone here we would never have understood Carthage. The museum is at the top of the hill that was Carthage and the successor Roman city. The museum is pretty small, but all marked and has maps...More

The museum on the site leaves a lot to be desired, especially compared to the Bardo. The museum is just part of the site, with other areas around the site to roam and explore old Roman ruins. Piles of old marble columns, various statues, and...More
