#3 of 12 in Museums in Tunis Governorate
Founded in 1875 on the spot where the heart of the ancient seaside city once stood, Carthage Museum houses an impressive collection of artifacts from the Punic era and other periods. See limestone carvings and marble sarcophagi with images of animals and plants and large colorful mosaics. Masks and jewelry in cast glass, amphorae, ornate Bronze razors, and ivory pieces testify to the past glory of the city, which once stood as Rome's main rival in the Mediterranean. Perched atop Byrsa Hill, the museum's garden offers sweeping views over the Bay of Tunis.

  • The museum is undergoing repair. But the outside -- the flowers are beautiful. Tickets here allow you to visit other historical sites. So you need to go to other markets before you go. There are many interesting things in the flower garden, and there are beautiful views of the city. Note: I like "general" because the outside of the museum is small.

  • I can't give any opinion about the museum part under construction... Were work in the middle of the Summer Zone with the complete closure of the museum essential? Regarding the exterior, very beautiful site overlooking the sea On which the question of maintenance returns again. Let us hope that the work will modernize the museum that I do not know but above all that the maintenance will be carried out in order to preserve it
