A visit to this lovingly preserved museum / family home was recommended on a recent visit to Sousse. A complete delight. The family / owners gave a warm welcome and encouraged us to explore every nook and cranny of this beautifully preserved Arabic home. Don't miss it if you visit the medina.

Was there several times, very interesting area to see, how the Bay of Sousse lived with his family, just 50years ago. Very special flair, nice and polite owners. Great view above Sousse.

For what you pay? It is a great deal. It is chock a block full of artifacts. You get a good sense of how people actually lived and carried on their lives.

Although a small museum visit highly recommended. Staff at entrance ever so helpful and also invited us to look round the main building which is still being renovated.

We really enjoyed our visit! The interior of this place is amazing, the time work is beautiful and is a gorgeous place to walk round! There is a cafe at the top of the museum and although it was closed when we were there the views and shady area is a lovely place for having rest from the heat. All... More
