On the hill above the Hippo Regius site, this museum displays many of the treasures found there and elsewhere in the vicinity of the town. The ground floor has a good collection of sculpture including the Emperor Vespasian which was found in the Hippo Regius Forum. But the star piece of the museum is the unique 2.5m high Trophy, a bronze representation of a post on which is hung a cape and military armour.
There are some amazing mosaics on display, the most impressive being a 3rd-century hunting scene, in which lion, leopards and antelope are chased into a trap. Another mosaic, of a fishing scene, includes a view of 3rd-century Hippo. Upstairs are pottery urns and lamps, glass jars and women's jewellery.
