- Hard trek to the basilica. But beautiful views of port and city certainly make it worthwhile. Lot of families visit with elderly and children. Nice photo exhibition available for free. Can take car but parking is a not nearby (about 500 meters).Written July 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful old buildings and Palaces going back to the pre Ottoman's era of Algiers, the Ottomans then the French Occupation and the More Modern Times.
Some buildings have been standing for over 1000 years. Don't forget to visit The Great Mosque, the New Most and Mosque of Keshawa.
The area is getting more attention and requires further cleaning and more facilities.
Great history and interesting to see where the famous Fan Affair Incident, actually took place. The incident used as an excuse to invade Algeria.Written July 16, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is a Passionate monument in the memorial of Algerian War, this is sad when we think about the lost lives , this monument is the matter of life, the matter of land and the matter of fighting with any kind of invasion and war.Written May 5, 2023
- As far Algiers' history was intentionally distorted by the French colonisators, it is very difficult to believe whatever interpretation, especially the ones presenting Algiers as an ottoman succursal. I believe Bastion 23 was a restoration project destined to avoid whatever Casbah restoration project but it had no historical evidence and is not cited in Topographia e historia general de Argel (1612).Written December 25, 2022
- This is certainly a grand old building and is quite a focal point for the centre of Algiers. However, it does not seem to be open to the public. It’s a busy place because of its location - it’s at the end of the most popular shopping street in the city and surrounded by popular cafes and restaurants.Written March 30, 2021
- Pleasant museum mostly because of its location and scenario with great garden areas. The museum lacks modern signage but holds an interesting collection of North African art workWritten August 15, 2021
- Our hotel (ABC hotel) was close to this. It is full of stores and restaurants, very lively and worth seeing. It is somewhat dirty, though, like most of Algeria, with many broken sidewalks.Written November 3, 2022
- This is a fabulous museum detailing the history of Algeria. It is not so much about the army as it is the struggles for independence over time. The expansive exhibits covering two floors are well thought out, well signed in English and Arabic and expressive of the history. The models of old cities and battles help put things in perspective and help to visualize the descriptions. The art depicting the people, history, struggles and suffering are moving and provide their own descriptions. If you want to learn about, or enhance your knowledge of, Algerian history and the fight for independence, this is the place to go.Written November 5, 2022
- A very famous port in Algeria, visited mostly by a young people, because of activities and restaurants and nearby beaches.Written September 20, 2019
- The museum is just across the road from the Botanical Gardens and the entry fee is very reasonable.
The views of Algiers and the gardens from the terrace are quite impressive.
There is a wide variety of exhibits, both local and European. They are spread over about three or four different floors so I’m not sure if people with mobility problems would cope very well.Written May 11, 2021

- The museum is small but your ticket also covers the Museum of Islamic Art. The Antiquities museum has some really lovely mosaics that are the highlight. Great value for the ticket price and you don't need to dedicate a lot of time to see it.Written February 27, 2019
- Nice place to walk, to promenade and to eat. Small Algiers Eye 👁 like London 👁. Best time in sunset bring your dinner and eat it on the groundWritten August 7, 2019
