The Bardo Museum, Tunisia

Tunisia's most celebrated museum exudes history throughout. The inside of the museum is famous primarily for its vast and unparalleled collection of mosaics, gathered from the floors of Tunisia's Roman sites and carefully arranged in the rooms, while the building's history itself dates back to the 13th century, when it was a Hafsid Palace, before being completely rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries during the time of the Husseinite Beys, the rulers of the country at the time.

The Bardo is not merely a Roman museum, and some of the first exhibits that you can come across detail Tunisian life in prehistoric times, and elsewhere on the first floor are collections of Islamic rooms that paint a picture of popular arts and traditions within the country in later times.
