  • I loved it! I went a year ago and I had so much fun with my friends while learning about our history. The stuff is welcoming and the building itself is clean and well-kept. Overall it was an amazing experience. I will definitely go back soon.
  • I wasn’t going to let a severely sprained foot prevent me from visiting the Bardo museum so I drugged myself up and hopped around the collection - let me tell you that it was so worth it! Wow - amazing! Words fail to describe the extensiveness, intricacies and detail of mosaics on display. Every room that you go to causes you to gasp in disbelief further - amazing
  • Amazing museum with wonderful mosaics. Incredible detail. Very courteous staff. Can easily spend hours in this fascinating museum!
  • Hands down the best museum in Tunis and Tunisia to that extent. The quality of the mosaics are amazing the way they are displayed for everyone to interact with. The have the largest collection of roman mosaics in the world all housed under one roof. It’s free for international students to enter.
