During a half day tour of the Djerba island also this museum has been visited. Very attractive piece of architecture, nice setting outside and inside. Great collection of clothing and antiquities. One negative - very scary looking figurines that are used in the displays.

The right spot to see sunset while drinking turkish coffe or mint tea. The museum is a must see in Djerba.

Very interesting and should be visited by anyone who goes to Djerba. People who are travelling not should only be interested in beaches but should also be aware of the culture of the local people.

When it comes to museums in small towns in out-of-the-way places, my usual strategy is simple: avoid at all costs. I can live without the dry and dusty exhibits, poorly labelled. So when our guide said we had a full hour here, well... my heart sank. But this museum is ten thousand times better than all those other ones put... More

This museum is in a lovely old building that seems to go on forever. Very clean and well organized with diorama like depictions of various traditions and cultural events related to the people of Djerba Island. The only downside was the camel used to demonstrate preparation of cereal grains. He was not happy at all. But at least they no... More

And discovered... More

We went here on an afternoon and yeah I guess you can say we found out a few interesting things about the djerban culture, but it was quite dry and really nothing special. The heritage museum at Djerba explore has way more to offer!
