This museum is the largest collection of mosaics outside Tunisia and has some particularly delicate specimens. The initial room has small mosaicsd but the second room with them on the floor and the walls takes your breath away. Going into the third and fourth room are large pieces that you can climb up a ladder to look down over to take in the sheer size and complexity followed by the details on the walls.

Outside has less spectacular specimens but still is worth a wander around.

The only issue is the lack of information about the finds but their beauty makes you forget about the details. allow yourself a few hours for this site.

This is a great museum. I live in Turkey and have been to many museums. This is a "must see", especially for the many and varied mosaics on display.
