Bardo museum is unique among international ones in having hundreds of square meters of authentic mosaic floors of different ancient ages of the Mediterranean basin.

The Bardo Museum is a really big building about history of Tunis and Tunisia. They have the biggest mozaics conserved in the world I guess, it's really impressive. You'll be walking within a cold building which was a palace before.

It has a wonderful mosaic collection from the Roman times. This is amazing and they are exhibited in a very classical manner. The mosaics came alive as we happened to have an extremely knowledgeable guide. Ideally one should have at least 5-6 hours to do justice. The Virgil mosaic was outstanding.

This museum is very similar to every other museum I've been to in this part of the world. (Syria, Lebanon, Morocco and Turkey). The write ups are very difficult to understand (translation) and in this particular museum a lot of them are just missing. You are currently not aloud to carry a backpack into the museum. Even though it has... More

I am so glad I made time to go to the Bardo. The tiles are beautiful and there are more than you can imagine. The old part of the museum is part of the experience and the collection of things recovered from a sunken Roman ship is interesting. We took the offer of one of the guides at the museum... More

This Bardo, not to be confused with the Algerian Bardo, has a wonderful mosaic collection. There is a small placard in English with the attributed century, but no other information, so do some research ahead of time. The mosaics will be more meaningful if you know what some of the images represent. Since you are walking on many of the... More

Worth a see and probably about the best thing available in Tunis unless you find specialist exhibitions. Good collection of roman mosaics. As usual though poor toilet facilities, no cafe (one situated opposite the Bardo but lacks choice and service poor or go back into the centre.)

I admit I had low expectations.... after all, how long can one look at mosaics, also, I previously only appreciated them in situ (when contained in ruins). But as I did not have time to go to Carthage, I decided to pop into the Bardo. I am glad I did as I was blown away. The artifacts celebrate Tunisia's rich... More

This was a real eye catcher. All the sculptures and all the pieces define history. It was a great experience.
