“Great mosaic museum”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Fab small museum of mosaics in the medina. Well presented and really interesting. The baptismal pool was amazing as well as the size of some of the mosaics. I quite liked how they had tastefully sketched in the missing bits on some of them to give you an overall idea of how the mosaic looked. Can't recommend enough.

“Oasis of calm and wonder”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

After the busy-ness of the souk, this is a calm cool place. The mosaics downstairs are really interesting and well-explained, the highlight being an ancient baptismal pool. The garden and courtyard upstairs is tranquil with jasmine and butterflies. Work was still being done on a display of tombs found in the courtyard during its reconstruction.
