Carthage National Museum, Tunisia
Carthage National Museum – sometimes simply called Carthage Museum – is one of the most important museums in Tunis and contains a range of interesting exhibitions and artefacts from the Carthaginian and Roman periods.
Amongst the many exhibits are displays examining life in ancient Carthage, the conflicts with the Roman Republic and the eventual destruction of the Punic city by Rome.
Also examined is the new Roman city and the Roman period itself as well as the story of Byzantine rule and the Arab conquest.
The museum includes a range of interesting finds, from jewellery, weaponry, tombs and funeral masks to Roman mosaics and day-to-day household items. Additionally, there is an interesting model of the Punic city.
