A nice and unique labyrinth of surrealist and contemporary art. It's unbelievable how a single artist can have so much inspiration! If you are lucky, the artist will guide you through the artworks and will tell you many stories about him, his work, life, trips, influences... It is the perfect place for discovering another side of creative Tunisia. Just go.

This has to been seen. I think its the best attraction in sousse and i have seen evetything ovet 24 years. Its not widely advertised ad its a family run business. Its a house converted into a living museum so although you enter to see hand made sculptures from litter picking you get the feel of a tunisian home. Its... More

Although I had read a short blurb about this place in a French guidebook, I stopped by with a friend right before we were ready to leave Sousse, not really knowing what to expect other than unusual, contemporary art pieces. The directions in our guidebook and the posted city signs for the museum proved a bit confusing, so we had... More

This place is amazing!! If you've got any interest in art then this will be right up your street! It's a maze of quirky and completely bizarre artefacts and artwork. Parts were completely mesmerising. The lady that runs it doesn't speak any English but is really lovely, we managed to cobble together some high school French which helped. It's 10... More

Wow! Wow! Is what you think as soon as you step up to the front of this Art Area - as you cannot call this a museum or a gallery - you are definitely taken aback, as this is an actual house. It is out of the way and set amongst other houses in a residential area (not sure what... More

This place alone is worth a visit to Tunisia. It's mind-blowing I could never do it justice, if you have even a vague interest in anything vaguely artistic check this place out. When we went I didn't have enough dinars, but he let me in regardless as long as i came back the next day with the money! So worth... More

took 2 kids along to see something different. This is a private courtyard style house displaying a range of sculpture mainly made from recycled old materials such as bulk load of old radios, used paintbrushes, strange tortoises made of sewn leather and old army helmets... Some are on the weird side and quite aggressive distorted figures made from sewn leather,... More

Not sure what is going on in this guys head, but he really expresses himself through his art. It is worth a look around but make sure you go with a vivid imagination.

A wonderful place to visit, children will love the collections of imaginary animals/figures made from bits and pieces of everyday things, really stretch their minds. For adults, the same and some superb marble works and pictures and much more. There is a lot here packed in literally. We had honour of being shown round by the artist himself and his... More
