A small wonderful palace which will take you to Algiers same place but many years ago. There is a parking inside Only one thing less, it should be better if there was a little cafeteria inside, so take care to get some snacks and water, and there is no shops all around.

I enjoyed this Bardo, but it is definitely not as good as the Bardo in Tunis. However, the Algerian Bardo is still worth a visit.

The Bardo houses a collection of neolithic finds, but nobody goes there to see old flint stones fragment but to see the beautifully ornamental moorish palace complex. Shame there is not much information about the people that once build it and lived in it but at least there are explanations (in french) what the rooms were used for and how... More

Visited it in January 2017. It is quite small. An hour is enough to do the main museum and 30 mins to visit the adjacent palace. Entry fee is 200 dinar per person. No café, but a garden area to sit. If you want to eat there then I'd advise to bring your own food and drink. Very clean and... More

We visited the musuem a few times already, each time we went we discovered a new thing, plenty of interesting stuff to learn & explore and mostly to understand our history in Algeria

What I loved about Bardo was how varied their expositions were. Whilst I don't feel like it is the best museum I've been to in terms of factual information, if you're into North African/Maghrebine architecture this is the place for you. I loved walking through the palace and snapped lots of pictures of the fountains and arches which I found... More

I read that it is one of the best museums in Algeria but I am not sure about that. The building was literally empty. Just a nice walls with a few paintings on it. I was told that is it unusulay so it looks that I was unlucky .

All free. Museum is prehistory stuff so of limited appeal. But the palace buidling in the same complex is excellent to stroll around, if without much explanatory info.
