Wonderful place with impressive collection of mosaics. Walking on the ancient mosaics on the floor is something special. we had a nice guide who considering our short time could meet the "deadline". Even children were impressed by the gorgeous place. Must see in Tunis!

If you have the time, you must visit the Bardo. You can also combine this with a visit the the old medina as they are located in the same area. Found myself wandering around the Bardo in a daze, just thinking about the history and connections that some of the pieces gave me. Chatted with some other tourists once I... More

Do not miss the Bardo. It was far better than I expected - and I was expecting it to be good. The building itself is marvellous - a former Ottoman palace with modern extensions and improvements. The collection is outstanding - notably the collection of mosaics. Many are Roman of course but there are several very interesting example from the... More

This place is beautifully maintained and is jaw dropping in its collection. You get up close and personal with so many mosaics and antique treasures that it is hard to not feel insignificant in this must-see attraction. The guides and curators are very friendly, and you really get an incredible history lesson in the story of human development when you... More

The Bardo Museum is superb. The museum displays a fantastic collection of mosaics in a former Turkish palace, A better collection of mosaics you will not find. Superb and a must see in Tunis

Great museum with a great collection of mosaics and artifacts covering the Carthaginian, Roman, Arab and Punic eras to mention those. Needs some improvements inside in terms of naming, guidance and directions but still more than ok and worth the visit.

I've wanted to visit the Bardo for a number of years and made my way here on my first afternoon in Tunis. It is located on the outskirts of the city, about 20 minutes' taxi ride from the city center (about TD 4-5 in my experience). The compound is heavily guarded. The building is lovely, comprising an old palace and... More
