The price for the museum is included in your ticket for Amphitetare, so, do yourself a favor and visit it! I am a lover of mosaics from Roman period so would visit this museum even if I had to pay... more »
Wow and I mean wow! This museum is incredible! From a humble entrance to an amazing collection of mosaics and artefacts which sprawls into a restored expanse of ruins. Your entrance to the amphitheater also gets you access here but only on the same day and it’s well worth checking out
I took a train from Tunis to came here that was 3hr 45min one way and return was delayed three hours. It was fun experience that I’ve never had except in Italy. I’ve seen many colosseum but this one is must see. There is ancient amphitheater at the other side of railroad. I didn’t see any tourist but if you have a time , please go there too.
