Housed at the turn of the last
century on the ground floor of a scolasticate
of Catholic religious, adjacent to the Saint-Louis
basilica built at the end of the XIXth century
on the site of the Carthage acropolis, this museum
contains the largest collection of objects from
the site of Carthage and covers the Phoenician-Punic,
the Roman-African and the Arab-Moslem periods.
Refurbished twenty years ago to better display
the constantly growing collections and to extend
the visit to include techniques used to conserve
and restore objects, the museum is at present
undergoing major restructuring within the framework
of the creation of the Archaeological park of
Carthage and it is set to become one of the major
establishments amongst North African museums.
