El Jem Museum

This site museum established in 1970 and renovated in 2002, contains an exceptional collection of ancient mosaics Thysdrus. The extreme richness of repertoire, the variety of themes and artistic quality mosaics make this collection, one of the most prestigious of Tunisia except the Mediterranean. This collection features performances sometimes unique in their realism as "the tiger attacking two wild asses and lions devouring a wild boar."
Are also exhibited in the museum, the terracotta figurines, sculptures and a beautiful collection of glass vases of various shapes, and light terra sigillata produced in Africa and famous throughout the Roman world.
