The World List of Tangibles of Tourist Attraction

The Bardo National Museum of Prehistory and Ethnography is a national museum located in Algiers, Algeria.

The edifice is a former Moorish villa. It was opened as a museum in 1927.

Nothing specific is known about this residence, formerly in the countryside and now encompassed in the modern city. H. Klein tells us that the palace was built in the eighteenth century and that it would have been the property of Prince Omar before the French conquest. A document, in the form of a drawing signed by Captain Longuemare, specifies that it is a certain Mustapha ben Omar who was a very rich Tunisian. In 1926, the Bardo Palace was ceded to the Domains by Mrs Frémont, sister and heiress of Pierre Joret.
