City Museum

City museum, or Kheireddine Palace, is located at the heart of the Medina of Tunis. Constructed between 1860 and 1870, the palace is distinguished from the rest of the neighboring buildings with its glass facade giving on “Place du Tribunal”.
The architecture of the palace is inspired by Italian buildings as wished for by Kheireddine Pacha, the original owner and one of the figures that changed the course of history in Tunisia.
Kheireddine Pacha, who was a originally a slave coming from Istanbul, was a distinguished military man who would later be appointed by the Bey as the grand minister.
After his death, the palace changed its functions. From a court house to educational institutions, Palais Kheireddine was later acquired by the municipality of Tunis to become the city’s museum and an art gallery.
