"Archeological Museum - House of Africa" Archaeological Museum Tip by Willettsworld
Archaeological Museum, El Jem: 13 reviews and 51 photos
In the grounds behind the museum building are the excavations of a few Roman Villas plus the reconstructed House of Africa which gives a good three dimensional idea of what a plush Roman Villa would have looked like based on floor mosaics, some of which still remain. There are some interesting literature on how mosaics were made and how they are removed so that they can be preserved. The mosaic of the goddess Africa still remains and is unique in Africa. More photo's can be found in one of my travelogues.
Directions: Outside the town on the road to Sfax
