  • A fabulously preserved collection of mosaics and statues & other smaller pottery items at this site. Outside, are many more still in situ within the grounds of the many dwellings which you are free to wander around. I could almost feel the history watching me! This is another great site to visit on your trip to Tunisia. If you like this collection, try the Sousse Archaeological Museum too.
  • Nice museum … however not much to see!
