Formerly known as Dar Ben Abdallah Museum, the Museum of Popular Art and Tradition is a palace, built in 1796. Great care was taken over the architecture, where a lavish vestibule leads to a patio paved with marble and surrounded by columns, the walls are lined with stucco and ceramic tile, and each room has an intricately painted ceiling.

The four rooms around the patio are home to exhibits on the bourgeois Tunisian families of the 19th century. There are dresses, embroidery, weaving, wedding accessories, and various other types of finery. We also have children's toys and clothes from ancient times that have their own display room. The kitchen of the palace has been well preserved, and a lot of kitchenware is exhibited there in its original space.

Rue Ben Abdallah, 1008 Tunis.
