After a four-year hiatus for renovations, the Archeological Museum in Sousse, Tunisia’s third-largest city, has recently reopened to much acclaim. Housed inside the medieval Kasbah (itself a historic treasure), the museum showcases different eras in the history of the city—beginning with the Phoenician settlement of “Hadrumetum.” The city’s Roman era is represented by a stunning collection of mosaics, second only to the Bardo Museum in Tunis.

The museum also contains information about Punic tombs from the 5th century BC that were uncovered in 2008 during the renovation. As impressive as the collection is, so is the hulking fortress of the Kasbah. From its garden terrace, you’ll find a panoramic view overlooking the medina all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.
5 TD entry, plus 1 TD with camera. Open Tuesday-Sunday, 9am-7pm in summer, 9am-6pm in winter.
