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.

Beautiful museum with many ancient artifacts. So many civilizations have crossed trough time in Tunisia and this museum is a perfect example of it.

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

The Bardo museum is among the hundreds of museums I have visited around the world. This is one of the museums where I was taken over not only by the beauty and splendor of the exquisite arts and crafts but I was also impressed by the display of the influnce of civilizations one over the other and one merging with...

Second to the Egyptian Museum, the Bardo houses many mosaics and is the national museum of Tunisia. The must-sees include Ulysses and the Sirens; and Virgil. Part of the museum is housed in an old palace, so the Carthage Room is also very nice to see. You will be reminded of the terrorist attack that occured in Mar 2015 at... More

This is an incredible museum and was on my must see list...and I am glad it was. The museum has an incredible selection of mosaics and original art works. Well displayed and described. The exhibits are nicely laid out and can be done in couple of hours - so can see without museum fatigue. An amazing place that you should... More

The Bardo Museum is surprisingly well designed, laid out, and full of incredible historical artifacts from Tunisian history. Tunisia has been an influential locale for thousands of years and for many empires and while many people aren't aware of the full breadth of Tunisia's historical importance, the museum will quickly enlighten any visitor to it's significance.

I really enjoyed the Bardo very much. It had an amazingly good collection of antiquities from all eras of Tunis' history, but the amount, size and quality of the mosaics is shocking. There are so many mosaics they pave many of the public spaces with them, and some are so large they extend from ground floor to the first floor... More

The Bardo Museum lived up to the hype. Room after room was filled with one beautiful mosaic after the next. On top of the wonderful historical pieces that were in the Bardo, the building itself was beautiful. The older parts of the Bardo are pieces of art themselves.
