  • The djenane would have been built, at the end of the eighteenth century, by a wealthy exiled Tunisian, Hadj Ben Omar, to serve as summer residence for the reception of the notables of the era. In 1930, the building was inaugurated by the French as a Museum of prehistory and ethnography on the occasion of the centenary of the colonisation in Algeria. The prehistoric collection includes objects Paleolithic and Neolithic, a nice collection of prehistoric figurations, and ostrich egg used as bottles by early man. The centerpiece of this place remains the collection including adornment and the furniture of Tin Hi nan, Queen of the Touareg. warm welcome and guide to the height. Free entry
