Lots of Roman artifacts and mosaics in this museum. There seem to be a lot of attendants (guides) who latch onto you and take you into closed off sections pretending they're doing you a big favour. It's all a scam to get a tip off you.

Well organized, with access for an older person like myself, great signage and very friendly staff, from booking office to the guards inside & out. Our guid was Haitham, very knowledgeable and well versed in Arabic, English & French. Plenty of mosaics from roman time till last royal dynasty. Walk in, slip shoe covers on and indulge in the history... More

The museum gives a great insight into ancient history in Northern Africa. Preferably start with the first and second floors which are certainly featuring the most impressive exhibits. It's a pity the building itself isn't better maintained. A lot of security at the entrance. (If you leave the museum, turn right, carry on walking for about 400m and you'll be... More

Since I was young, I visited this museum many times. It is excellent and give you a very big idea about the civilizations which stayed in our country Tunisia. It is a big opportunity to know the history of our country.

The Bardo Museum is beautiful! The security is a welcome sight since last year's tragic events. The museum does a good job showing the various peoples that lived in Tunisia over the millenia such as exhibits about the Punic period, the Christian Period, the Roman period, the Islamic period. Go!

It was hit by terrorism and obscurantism a few months ago and art and love won after all . Art and death collided in this place so the visit is always very emotional. I recommend it for... More

A big palace from the Turkish era. I liked best the Roman and older parts, and the building itself. Peaceful, a lot of space because tourists have not yet returned since 2015. We had the guides practically to ourselves.

Wonderful place with impressive collection of mosaics. Walking on the ancient mosaics on the floor is something special. we had a nice guide who considering our short time could meet the "deadline". Even children were impressed by the gorgeous place. Must see in Tunis!
