This is one of the richest mosaic museums in the world. There is a small fee for entrance 11TD and if you want to take some photos 1 TD more. Starting from early Carthaginians to Ottoman Empire and prior Tunis, you will find many things, and really impressive. It has been expanded recently but I found it a little bit... More

Recently expanded, amazing mosaics, sarcophagi. Beware of helpful locals helping you to see closed-off parts of the museum, looking for a fat tip

learn just about everything you need to know about Tunis. This museum is considered the richest in the world for Roman mosaics. The museum is located in a 13th century palace surrounded by landscaped gardens. The ceilings are an attraction on their own. This museum is a masterpiece in its own right and you will get the full impact of... More

Some wonderful pieces but as the museum is in the process of renovation/additions the access to some areas is unpredictable - but there is so much to see, anyway.

An extensive and beautiful collection of mosaics. The museum itself is gorgeous. The museum was made out of someone's palacial home.

This is a must see place for anyone visiting Tunisia. Ideally before you head out to the temples and ancient sites as you will get to see many of the original mosaics so you will have a better appreciation of the scale of this art form. The museum is vast and is worth visiting more than once to take it... More

We were lucky enough to have our guide with us when we visited the museum and he was able to show us around the best rooms of this very extensive museum, and I would certainly recommend a guide to show you around. The sheer number of mosaics on display was amazing, and they were from all over Tunisia and beyond.... More

I loved the set up. Large rooms giving space to great artifacts.. There were good descriptions explaining what you were looking at. I spent much time reading. I would have liked a better arrow system that would lead us to all the rooms in sequence.

Our fixed price taxi (5 hours, 70 euro) picked up from the port took us on a tour that was simply stunning, surprising and informative. The Bardo museum was simply breathtaking in its historical footprint of a bygone era and provided us with insight into the wonders of ancient Tunis and the influence of the Roman Empire and their craftsmen....
