Dar Essid Museum - Sousse, Tunisia

This was a small, private museum I'm glad i didn't miss. In a quiet part of the medina, it occupies a beautiful old home, furnished in the style of a well-to-do 19th-century Sousse official and his family. The dimensions of the elaborately decorated, arched door are the first indication of the owner's status. It opens into a small anteroom for meeting strangers, and then into a tiled courtyard surrounded by the family rooms.


According to the guide, the man that lived here had two wives - one stayed in a room to the left and one to the right. He stayed in the middle and the wives would take turns 'visiting' him… There was a separate room for the kids and also one for the servant/maid. Needless to say, I have a few more from this place too… :)
