Must do if you go to Djerba

Great to know about traditions of the people of Djerba: both Muslims and Jews after that you can enjoy the nice view and breeze in the coffee just at the exit

A real image of old Tunisia. I strongly recommend the visit. It is so authentic, it sends shovers down your spine... the wedding celebrations, the circumcision ceremony, the traditional costumes...and the whole atmosphere is phenomenal. Given the chance, I would love to go back there.

Interesting to visit and have a glimpse of history of Djerba Island. A lot of facts and figures inside, kids can have a free ride on a Camel too (short but nice).

I think the museum staff can do much better in maintaining the artifacts they have on display. Most things were covered with dust. It has been a dusty day but continuous regular maintenance is badly needed to preserve the collection. I think some art students could do a good job in this museum, as a study project.

Great place created by a bunch of local citizens who wanted to collect different Djerbian traditions in one location. Includes marriage habits, symbolism of these habits, arts, clothing, religion, architecture..

I liked this museum as it had different types of displays. Rather than an art museum, it was a cultural museum where they had window displays showing the different customs and rituals of the Berbers.
