Since 2005, the "Jazz à Carthage" festival has showcased around fifteen acts every April. Tunisian and international artists are involved in concerts taking place in several venues around the city, including the Acropolium (the Saint Louis Cathedral). Past artists have included Al Di Meola, Ike Turner, Al Jarreau, Barbara Hendricks and Murray Head to name a few. The current year's programme is available on the festival's website.
The National Museum of Carthage is situated next to the Acropolium on Byrsa Hill which dominates the city of Carthage. It is housed in an old seminary of the Peres Blancs (the white fathers, missionaries in Africa) and it was them who started the excavations which form the basis of the collections found in the museum. All around the building itself, a number of excavated sites are found, such as the Roman forum or some Punic houses. From here visitors can benefit from a view over Carthage and the Bay of Tunis. The exhibitions within the museum follow a chronological order, with Punic, Roman, Christian an Arabic objects on display, in fact most of the objects found in and around Carthage. A model of the city of Carthage gives an idea of its size and organisation. The museum is open from 8am to 7pm between April and mid-September and from 8.30am to 5.30pm during the rest of the year.
