El Djem Museum

Inspired by the design of a Roman house, El Djem Museum includes three large exhibition rooms and a reception area, surrounding a central courtyard with a garden and peristyle. The museum exhibits archeological treasures of Roman Thysdrus such as sculptures, ceramics, terra cotta statuettes, and metal objects.

The museum is currently being extended to accommodate the many mosaics that have been discovered more recently, as well as a large number of quite unique objects produced by the craftsmen of Thysdrus during the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD.
