  • What a contrast against the background of the general poverty of the neighborhoods of medina (historical part of the city)... to see the standard of the museum, world-class! With masterpieces of art with a history of more than two thousand years. This is what everyone should see... who came to this country.

  • Within the walls of the Medina, this Unesco-sponsored museum is certainly an attraction not to be missed, not only for those who are in Sousse, but also for those who visit Tunisia. The highlight are magnificent mosaics (among the most beautiful I have ever seen) of the II and III century all well exposed and commented in English and French. The baptismal font is astonishing. Admission 10 dinars (approx. 3 euro)

  • 100% worth a visit whilst in the area, we had the whole place to ourselves on our visit. Friendly staff, some good exibits & a good location for exploring Sousse Old Town, markets & harbour. We had no issues, people friendly & genuinly glad to see that the British are slowly returning.
  • Excellent place to visit. Really good roman antiques there. Very well preserved by tunisians. Well done
