  • Honestly, this museum was much better than I expected. And for a ridiculously cheap entry (1 euro). OK, nobody would be any worse for it if they had more English explanations next to Arabic and...  more »
  • The museum appeared small at first but turned out to be fairly large with a varied collection. The building is very nice and the view from the terrace is great. Ticket price is very cheap.  more »

  • Deceivingly expansive, this fine arts museum has a good range of European and Algerian inspired art work. It’s bronze collections are sublime, not to mention the view from the balcony.
  • One of the best places in Algiers, it contains the largest collection of fine Arts in Africa and middle East, it was built in 1930 if I remember correctly, as extension of the Test Garden of Hamma, it gives you a beautiful view on it and on Algiers..... The stuff is very helpful and welcoming, you'll never regret the time you spend there
