During a half day tour of the Djerba island also this museum has been visited. Very attractive piece of architecture, nice setting outside and inside. Great collection of clothing and antiquities. One negative - very scary looking figurines that are used in the displays.

The right spot to see sunset while drinking turkish coffe or mint tea. The museum is a must see in Djerba.
