This is a must do. Do not leave without going. This place has the largest collection of tile work I have ever seen. The museum is 3 floors and it is filled with great work. There is a small shop..... more »
I loved it! I went a year ago and I had so much fun with my friends while learning about our history. The stuff is welcoming and the building itself is clean and well-kept. Overall it was an amazing experience. I will definitely go back soon.
I wasn’t going to let a severely sprained foot prevent me from visiting the Bardo museum so I drugged myself up and hopped around the collection - let me tell you that it was so worth it! Wow - amazing! Words fail to describe the extensiveness, intricacies and detail of mosaics on display. Every room that you go to causes you to gasp in disbelief further - amazing
