If you come to the coliseum- you would most likely visit the museum unless you don’t want to see any more mosaics - it’s included in your admission price Walking distance from the Amphitheatre And louage

Incredible place to visit. The history of the romans and the skills involved in making the mosiacs. There are plenty of mosiacs to see. All different in designs and colours. Very interesting place to visit.

It's nearby the El Jem amphitheatre so it's well worth stopping in while you're in the area. Several rooms of well preserved mosaics all over the walls and the floors. See if you can get an explanation of some of them as they date back...More

We were not quite ready for the feast of mosaics on view at this museum. Mostly from the Roman period with the famous Africa House to walk around. Definitely worth a visit if in the vicinity.

Worth the stop. Especially that you don’t need to pay an extraif you are visiting the amphitheatre. It’s a short walk from each other. About 700 meters. Recovered mosaics, statues and ‘chambers’
