A must visit if you are in Tunis, marvelous mosaics and Punics, Romans sculpures and objects. The palace is stunning, the staff very friendly

Very interesting museum, a bit disorganized and old, with some new parts, but big and with many interesting things to see. It helps you to understand the history of the country.

I had very little time and knew exactly what I wanted to see but of course all the sections I wanted were closed, including the whole of the second floor. A shame they don't only charge half price for seeing only half the exhibits!

this museum does seem to have the best collection of Roman mosaics. Besides the mosaics, there are sculptures and a display of traditional furnishings. The museum is a nice size .

Really very impressive collection of Punic, Greek and Roman artifacts. Some of the mosaics are truly massive. It's a little hard to imagine them in their original context. And there's not a lot of explanation about that. But nearly everything is labeled in Arabic, French...More

Towards the end of our stay in Tunisia, we went to the Bardo Museum. Some people many remember it as the place where, on 18 March 2015, 21 people, mostly European tourists, were killed in a terrorist shooting. Around 50 others were injured. When we...More
