Photography or visits to neighboring villages is also suggested.
The House Museums is situated in the proximity of the western entrance of old Ghadames. This museum was actually the home of some famous merchant who used to do business in the surrounding areas.

Although it might not look like a traditional museum (you might get disappointed if you are expecting something which will introduce you to the history of Ghadames), you will surely love its interiors.
The Big Mosque of Ghadames (also famous by the traditional name of D’jmaa al-Kabir) is another famous tourist attraction of the city, mainly for its architecture.
