We were told it was closed due to renovations and would be for several months Very little appeared to be happening. We still had a worthwhile time by looking at the limited remains of the capital including Punic housing and a few pieces of marble....More

The museum itself is currently closed for refurbishment. You can still access the grounds with the standard Carthage ruins ticket which has a collection of statues and some larger objects out. Signage is very limited in general and even more so in english

Did a quick walk around this place. There is not a lot to see, especially if you are going to be traveling to sites outside of Tunis. The place is well maintained and the Museum itself had a few interesting pieces in it. Remember that...More

Untouched and unkept to a point. You will see some of the most historic and fine pieces of the earth here. The culture and history of pieces they have are really collective and worth a visit. The history of this city is amazing and this...More

The ruins are something to see but the museum has nothing exceptional and felt like a scam. At 3£ per person it wasn’t expensive but a waste of time as the history is all outside in the ruins

Our guide was indifferent, but if we had not gone here we would never have understood Carthage. The museum is at the top of the hill that was Carthage and the successor Roman city. The museum is pretty small, but all marked and has maps...More

The museum on the site leaves a lot to be desired, especially compared to the Bardo. The museum is just part of the site, with other areas around the site to roam and explore old Roman ruins. Piles of old marble columns, various statues, and...More

Two galleries exhibit the finds from the Byrsa Hill sites of the Punic and Roman remains but we were spoilt by the professionalism of the Bardo and this was poor by comparison. Signing limited in English on first floor.
