The museum was worth every Euro we spent. It was very accessible. If you like history and art is a must go. The bad thing is if you are part of the cruise ship this is the last place they will take you and in a rush.

If you are into mosaics then you are going to love this museum! Took a taxi out and the tram back. Very easy to get to and once inside the museum it was beautiful. Definitely a world-class museum.

This is one of the richest mosaic museums in the world. There is a small fee for entrance 11TD and if you want to take some photos 1 TD more.
Starting from early Carthaginians to Ottoman Empire and prior Tunis, you will find many things, and really impressive. It has been expanded recently but I found it a little bit crowded. Due to renewals some of the halls were kept closed. If you like and are interested in history, this museum is a place for half/full day. If you like to spend some time by seeing historical things, still come to visit and you will have a short visit of 1-2 hrs.; however if for you a museum means having coffee while looking at people, don't come, there is no cafeteria inside.

Recently expanded, amazing mosaics, sarcophagi. Beware of helpful locals helping you to see closed-off parts of the museum, looking for a fat tip

learn just about everything you need to know about Tunis. This museum is considered the richest in the world for Roman mosaics.
The museum is located in a 13th century palace surrounded by landscaped gardens. The ceilings are an attraction on their own. This museum is a masterpiece in its own right and you will get the full impact of it's history and culture once you step foot into the museum.
