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

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.

It is true, no English displays make this visit somewhat problematic. However, on the first floor, you can find a model of the city as it used to be and some pictures of Byrsa harbor in ancient times. Definitely worth taking a look to get...More
