Whilst I don't feel like it is the best museum I've been to in terms of factual information, if you're into North African/Maghrebine architecture this is the place for you.

Housed in a very attractive building, the museum has a small but well curated collection of artefacts and art. Admission is free, and staff are quite helpful.

Its a good example of how houses looked 150 years ago in Algiers. The biggest problem I had was I was expecting more antiquities and art work and it was completely empty. But I was able to take a 4 minute walk to the Museum of Antiquities and it made up for it

There are lots of rooms and stairs filled With beautiful tiles everywhere, and great doorknobs on old doors. There is also a Nice garden, and a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. There is a small shop where one can buy pamphlets and a few books.
