Mindblowing mosaics

I admit I had low expectations.... after all, how long can one look at mosaics, also, I previously only appreciated them in situ (when contained in ruins). But as I did not have... read more

Worth a see and probably about the best thing available in Tunis unless you find specialist exhibitions. Good collection of roman mosaics. As usual though poor toilet facilities, no cafe (one situated opposite the Bardo but lacks choice and service poor or go back into the centre.)

But as I did not have time to go to Carthage, I decided to pop into the Bardo. I am glad I did as I was blown away. The artifacts celebrate Tunisia's rich... More

This was a real eye catcher. All the sculptures and all the pieces define history. It was a great experience.

We spent the day with our local Tunisian guide Moncef-achouri@hotmail.fr who gave us a personal tour through the museum, highlighting the finest examples inside this former 15th Century Palace. The modern architecture of the newer exhibition space has gorgeous elements of skylights and opaque flooring on the second floor to provide natural light on the mosics. This was clearly the... More

Don't let the 2015 terrorist attack here deter you from visiting this wonderful museum. Their collection of mosaics is more extensive than anything you will see anywhere else.

You get THE feeling that the guides are More or less the same guys that run around in leather jackets, sneakers and caps, chasing tourists all Day.. not professionall and u dont know if the stories they tell you are bogus or just summaries.. shame that a museum can be run that way.

Tunisia was devastated by the terrorist attacks a few years ago and is happy to see tourists coming back. We never felt threatened or unsafe. The Bardo is a :must see." Wonderful displays, some of the world's finest artwork from Roman times, unbelievable tiles and frescoes. Well-guarded and secure

Was not sure what to expect of the Bardo, but were totally blown away by both the quantity and quality of the many, many mosaics on the walls and floors. Certainly the high point of our trip to Tunis.

Informative and very well maintained premise, Accessible by metro no 4 and walking distance from the station. You may take around 1 to 1.5 hrs to explore. There are "tunis accesories" sellers who will approach you outside the place. Looks cheap fake products though.
