This interesting two-floor archaeological museum is hosted in a former French seminary. The vestiges gathered here tell us the story of the once powerful city of Carthage, including the tragic 3rd Punic War when the victorious Romans destroyed their opponent, up to the definitive fall of the antique Carthage during the Arab conquest. Among the Phoenician museum vestiges, you can notably find sarcophagi, funeral masks and epitaph. Some great daily life items and amphorae give a hint of the culture of those trading seamen that were also skilled in the agricultural techniques. The Roman past of Carthage is notably enlightened by mosaic tiles and some beautiful statues. Admission is TD 7, this price includes the access to the other sites of the Archeological Park of Carthage.
