The museum of Maktar holds a nice collection of artifacts showing the shift from Numidian to Punic to Roman culture at this place.
The Numidian sections contains mainly gravestones dedicated to the god Baal Hammom.
Personally, I found the mosaics most fascinating. Some of them are in excellent condition.
