If you are planning your trip it's helpful to know that the actual museum is currently closed. However, the ticket covers all 6 or 8 sites in Carthage, so still well worth it. The Bardo Museum is open if you want to see more mosaic...More

This was part of a package tour including Sidi Bou Said and Tunis. I would happily have forgone the other 2 and spent the day wandering around these ruins and the Antonian Baths down below. Plenty to see and if the weather is nice ;-)...More

Carthage National Museum is a national museum in Byrsa, Tunisia. The museum sits atop Byrsa Hill, in the heart of the city of Carthage. Lots of history of this historic place and its impact in our civilization.

There is still plenty to see and do outside. A few ruins and spots for pics. But the ticket you buy gets you in to all the sites in the area. The roman theater, the baths, villas, etc. Early or late evening is best as...More

The museum itself is currently closed for refurbishment. You can still access the grounds with the standard Carthage ruins ticket which has a collection of statues and some larger objects out. Signage is very limited in general and even more so in english

Did a quick walk around this place. There is not a lot to see, especially if you are going to be traveling to sites outside of Tunis. The place is well maintained and the Museum itself had a few interesting pieces in it. Remember that...More
