It is unclear when and by whom the Bardo villa was constructed, but it appears to show strong Tunisian influences, particularly in its Qallaline tile-panels. The building and grounds are enchanting, while the somewhat subterranean museum of prehistory will interest some more than others. Not...More

We came and were not super interested in the museum, though I'm sure some people would like it. We accidentally found the amazing house and upstairs rooms when we used the restrooms after seeing the museum-- it's up the hill from the museum entrance. Beautiful,...More

I love museums, this one was ok... layout and flow was good, artifacts were sparse but there was a lot of good text (in Arabic and French). The second exhibit focussed on the loss and desecration of historical places and artifacts. This was well put...More

The Bardo houses a collection of neolithic finds, but nobody goes there to see old flint stones fragment but to see the beautifully ornamental moorish palace complex. Shame there is not much information about the people that once build it and lived in it but...More
