  • Easy and quick to walk through. Good to get a glance at Djerba traditions (very focused on wedding). It was fun and instructing to read some rational behind those traditions. Very clean. I recommend. You have got a decent outdoor view from there.
  • Amazing place to visit, so well kept, I had the pleasure to visit this museum and Learn the Tunisian culture, I will definitely recommend it, well worth the visit, the entrance is so cheap and if you hire a taxi, the driver will wait for you at a minimal cost. BIG 5 stars
