National Museum of Antiquities

This Museum contains the riches artifacts of Algeria’s heritage. They collect antiquities found from sites around the city and in other locations throughout Algeria.

The very first antiquities stored in this museum were fine ivory carvings and large, totemic Libyan-period warriors on horseback.

There are sculptures from Cherchell and mosaics from Tipaza, a room of bronzes including a wonderful fragment of a horse’s leg and hoof, and an extraordinary 3rd-century figure of a chubby child holding an eagle to its chest.
