Dar Essid Museum, Sousse: 12 reviews and 46 photos
The third museum in Sousse I'd like to mention is the Dar Esid - in my opinion the most worthwhile to visit and most surprised it wasn't mentioned in my guide book. Just goes to show you should explore and use your own eyes and not solely depend upon a book. The museumis situated in the corner of the medina behind the Ribat. Reaching it was a bit of an experience as rather than walking up from the Ribat we appproached through the Medina walls from the top end and promptly found ourselves in the red light district - maybe thats why the guidebook didn't mention it! We put our heads down and scurried down an alleyway hopefully in the direction of the museum only to find it came to a dead end and we had to re-trace our steps! Anyway to the museum, a privately owned one - just 2 dinars to vist plus the obligatory dinar for photography - well worthile here. Before we go in here's a view of the door entrance- the size indicative of the wealth of the house - and typically decorated with christian and islamic motifs. Ok lets go inside....
