During a half day tour of the Djerba island also this museum has been visited. Very attractive piece of architecture, nice setting outside and inside. Great collection of clothing and antiquities. One negative - very scary looking figurines that are used in the displays.

Very interesting and should be visited by anyone who goes to Djerba. People who are travelling not should only be interested in beaches but should also be aware of the culture of the local people.

This museum is in a lovely old building that seems to go on forever. Very clean and well organized with diorama like depictions of various traditions and cultural events related to the people of Djerba Island. The only downside was the camel used to demonstrate preparation of cereal grains. He was not happy at all. But at least they no... More

And discovered... More
