An incredible museum which offers a rich panorama of the Tunisian and Arabo-islamic world art. An unprecedented collection of more than 1000 pieces, telling 13 centuries of Art and History, divided into 15 rooms with a museography sober and airy. A pure moment of cultural pleasure !
The impressive collection composed by 1000 pieces, the richest in the country, shows the influence exerted by the Islamic art of the Mediterranean basin to the confines of Asia. Calligraphy and miniature master pieces, sacred manifestations, precious sets and ancient doors, ceramics and potteries were assembled with passion through the world. Two big sections: the first one is dedicated to the worldwide cultures and the other one to the Tunisian arts. Through the 15 rooms or galleries soberly decorated, you will admire the Kachan shiny squares, the parchment of the Koran from Kairouan, fragments of the Kaaba curtain, silver and silk banners of mystical brotherhoods, Tunisian potteries and the superb collection of Tunisian jewels and costumes.
