Wonderful Museum of Mosaics
Feb 2020 • Solo
This is one museum I recommend to come to visit if you come to Tunis. If you are into mosaics this it’s definitely the place for you to come to see and every room shows the history of each mosaics and sculptures and the history of the region from the time of Carthage. So definitely come here.

Great Visit
Sep 2020 • Solo
I enjoyed my first visit to Bardo Museum in the Capital Tunis last Saturday.
As per the information I ve got from the Cashier that I am not allowed to use any professional Camera but I can use only my mobile phone
I read on the official website that the Museum open everyday from 09 till 05 pm but when I was there I realise that they close on Monday!!!
I had a great Time and hope the Direction will improve their official Website.

To See Before One Dies 6.
Jan 2020
Tunis is a Mediterranean city with a North African climate, quaint Arabic features and a seductive charm that makes it ideal for a city break with a difference and it is a mere forty four miles from Europe. Historically it was considered one of the most important and richest cities in the Islamic world. A century of French colonial rule has also left its mark with classy tree lined boulevards, pavement cafe's and some subtle overtones reminiscent of the south of France but with a distinctive Saharan twist. It rivals Jerusalem and Beirut with its , Mosques, classic architecture and warren of streets bursting with creative energy. It was once a hangout for celebrities, Oscar Wilde, Alexandre Dumas, Paul Klee, Hemingway and Simone de Beauvoir were regular visitors.
The Bardo is the flagship of Tunisian heritage and is one of the great museums on the continent of Africa. With a treasure of ancient artefacts and statues from Carthage, once
the richest city in the world, this is a captivating destination with few equals on the globe. It also hosts one of the world's largest collection of ancient mosaics that are intricate, majestic and so delicate. A visit here is certainly recommended and was one of the many highlights of a visit to this very historic, intriguing and charming city.

Tiles
Nov 2019
This is a must do. Do not leave without going. This place has the largest collection of tile work I have ever seen. The museum is 3 floors and it is filled with great work. There is a small shop with great books and souvenirs.

Go to the cafe for tea and cake on your way out.

GREAT COLLECTION
Mar 2020
This museum is located in an 18th century royal palace. So many Roman mosaics and
Statues. The mosaics are beautiful and a must see. There is a showcase with the bullet holes from the 2015 terrorist attack. Highly recommend this Museum.

Bardo - definitely worth a visit!
Mar 2020 • Family
The Bardo Museum has a lot of very large mosaics, or as they refer to them, Masterpieces. A walk through the museum will uncover how the ruling group at any given point in time influenced the region. Tunis should be a must see before visiting Italy as it provides a ton of context for the size and time frame the Phoenicians rule of this area prior to Rome’s assention to power. As they say, to the winner goes the spoils and when Rome came to power they really did ruin much of what existed prior to their arrival. The Bardo does a wonderful job of piecing together broken artifacts in way that makes it seem like you are looking at the original piece. Outstanding museum!

The most beautiful mosaïque collection in the world

If you love mosaïque, this the place to be. Located in an old palace of the bey, tiles and ceiling decorations are magnificent and show the luxury of the ottoman style.
