I think the museum staff can do much better in maintaining the artifacts they have on display. Most things were covered with dust. It has been a dusty day but continuous regular maintenance is badly needed to preserve the collection. I think some art students could do a good job in this museum, as a study project.

Great place created by a bunch of local citizens who wanted to collect different Djerbian traditions in one location. Includes marriage habits, symbolism of these habits, arts, clothing, religion, architecture..

I liked this museum as it had different types of displays. Rather than an art museum, it was a cultural museum where they had window displays showing the different customs and rituals of the Berbers.

This is an interesting museum, but needs seriously updating. Very old fashioned manequinns which look like they've seen better days. Not every exhibit has an English translation. Visited as part of an organised day trip and would have been a little disappointed if i'd just vistied this museum.

Logically and well-laid out on a hilltop with views across the surrounding part of the island. There were a few really interesting bits in here and a friendly camel. Only criticism is that the format is a little 'samey', basically amount to lots of rooms with dummies in costume with a couple of paragraphs of information next to each.

We had visited the Synagogue at El Riadh then the remains at Meninx, and wondered on our way back to Houmt Souk whether it would be open on a quiet Monday in the first week of June. It was. Displays include baking, weaving and costumes for wedding ceremonies. The meaning of the details is also explained. A friendly guide introduced... More
