Tunis Museum of Arts and Traditons

The Tunis Museum of Arts and Traditions presents traditional arts and customs of the city of Tunis. Each apartment shows some of the rites of passage between the important stages in a lifetime such as birth, circumcision, and engagement and marriage, and illustrates the life style of a family of the Tunisian upper classes in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The supports of the exhibition consist of furnishings, human figures, costumes, jewellery, women’s toilet accessories, the kitchen, and the male child’s education through a reconstitution of a koranic school.
