The Museum of Djémila in Algeria is located within the ruins of the spectacular Roman town of Djémila (or Cuicul as it was then known) and contains many of the beautiful mosaic pavements found on the site. They cover around 1700 square metres (18298 sq ft) almost the whole of the wall space of the museum. Highlights include a mosaic showing a hunting scene: the 10-metre-long (32 ft) so-called Mosaic of the Ass, and the Toilet of Venus.
