The ancient- the christian and the byzantine idioms are enlivened here. Good state, pristine, 'pebble work', metaphorically the mosaic is solid, constructivist brush work. Here at its best. Thematically, coloristically, narrative and beauty.

This is an amazing museum! There are almost too many great mosaics to take in during a single visit. The building is being renovated but open nonetheless. Don't forget your camera, pictures are allowed.

This is an interesting space. It combines an old historic building with a contemporary new one. Endless rooms of mosaics and ruins pulled from around the nation. Could use some more explanations in English, but it's pretty amazing to see what they've put here. Lots was missing from the collection during our visit (loaned to a museum in Germany). Locals...

Just as advertised....full of amazing mosaics, I was really impressed. They are presented in a modern, light building an interesting way to spend half a day.

When the taxi dropped us off.. I thought a mistake had been made. The building is in the middle of the true city (not a touristy spot, as far as I could tell) and fairly unassuming from the entrance...But step inside and WOW! Step in further....AMAZING! If you are a history buff (especially of Roman ruins and mosaics--you will think... More

It is easy to get n with taxi. Not accept more than 6 dinars from the center to museum. Inside very precious Greek repert at 1 floor. The harem is fascinating and very impressive. The location and the exposition are beautiful. Ask for the free guide. Everityng become more clear and Intresting. Takes 2 hours to visit the museum.

Having visited Carthage yesterday, we were unprepared for the sheer scale and quality/quantity of mosaics. assumed the ones on floor we walked across were recreations but no! The underwater treasures from Mahdia were truly amazing.
