  • It is interesting to walk around, see mnogovremeni didn't take. Walked themselves over the excursions are not recognized.

  • Not much to see here but worth the visit. Lots of Roman Mosaic which I'm sure will be of interest to art lovers but unfortunately I found it very samey  more »
  • If you switch from Sousse a museum visit is mandatory: housed in an old fortress with a breathtaking view of the city with the sea in the background, houses a collection of outstanding mosaics. Well organized and explained, worth the visit.

  • 100% worth a visit whilst in the area, we had the whole place to ourselves on our visit. Friendly staff, some good exibits & a good location for exploring Sousse Old Town, markets & harbour. We had no issues, people friendly & genuinly glad to see that the British are slowly returning.
  • Excellent place to visit. Really good roman antiques there. Very well preserved by tunisians. Well done
  • Worth visiting museum, lot of history and well organized.
  • A very organized one with a great outside view; detailed explanation is provided to each exhibit inside the museum. Highly recommended if you are a big fan of history (Roman Empire) or a believer of Christianity.
  • Interesting building, exhibits are mostly mosaics. 9 dinar entry, cafe was closed
