Bardo Museum information
Lonely Planet review
The country's top museum has a magnificent, must-see collection that provides a vibrant vision of ancient North African life. The original, glorious Husseinite palace now connects with a stark and dramatic contemporary addition, doubling exhibition space. Highlights are a huge stash of incredibly well-preserved Roman mosaics, rare Phoenician artifacts and early Islamic ceramics. The Bardo is 4km northwest of the city centre. Take métro léger line 4 (TD0.5) to the Bardo stop, or a taxi (around TD5).
