The Largest Museum in Tunisia has Reopened to the Public

The museum is housed in a 19th century Ottoman governor’s palace located near the parliament in Tunis. Visitors gazed at several giant antique mosaic pieces, among them depictions of the Roman god Neptune or Hercules and his beloved Omphale. The Bardo’s fame originates from its countless rare artefacts discovered during excavations undertaken in Tunisia since the XIXth Century. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Tunisia has been at the crossroads of many of the world’s renowned civilizations. The museum has a tradition of organizing scientific seminars and meetings as well as welcoming young people for workshops. The youth can learn more about moulding and Arab calligraphy for instance.
