Dar Ben Abdallah

Interesting
This old 18C palace has been fully restored and furnished and is well worth a visit for the glimpse it provides of daily life, both public and private, of the wealthy inhabitants of the medina in the 19C and early 20C. The Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions has created four reconstructed scenes using mannequins, costumes and objects to bring this period back to life. A fascinating and beautiful museum!
