Beautiful art and architecture. A cool and calm place in the middle of a bustling city. Easy to reach by metro, with a little walking.

The building didn't look that much from the outside but inside we were blown away by the amount of mosaics and the sizes of them. We were whisked back in time and thoroughly enjoyed what we thought was going to be a short boring visit!...More

The Bardo has a big new building with great Roman and early Christian mosaics, but many vacant display cases. Many items are on loan somewhere else.

The mosaics are unbelievable. A really well-curated museum. Unlike some of the other musea in Tunis, this has been done profesionally. It's also a lovely building. See especially the Virgil mosaic.

Stunning Roman Carthaginian collection of mosaics and statues. Museum sadly lacks information at each display point ; thank goodness we had our guide.Poor museum shop; no cafe; other museums do it so much better. Yet it is a very interesting collection.....

We enjoyed a trip to the Bardo Museum. If you like mosaics and a bit of history then you are in the right place. We went with a tour guide which was helpful and then for some lunch in a very nice restaurant.

We visited here whilst we had a driver for the day. If you're into Roman history then it's a must do, if not then you can take it or leave it. There seemed to be a lot of the same and not much variety. Many...More

The ancient- the christian and the byzantine idioms are enlivened here. Good state, pristine, 'pebble work', metaphorically the mosaic is solid, constructivist brush work. Here at its best. Thematically, coloristically, narrative and beauty.
