The National Bardo Museum Reviews
An amazing museum, an absolute "must see" for any student of Roman history. The collection of mosaics is overwhelming. My personal favorite is still a small statue of Hercules, but you will have to see for yourself why this is the case.
superb museum. when they say thousands of mosaics they mean it they are everywhere. few decent ones and then some fillers. but you walk around on the fillers and slightly more ordinary ones while you gasp at the huge mosaics on the walls with superb detailing and its like that room after room after room. absolutely worth a visit
