Bani Walid

Bani Walid (Banu Walid, Bin Ulid, etc.) is a town in Libya without any particular claim to fame. There is a medieval cemetery that is now used as a garbage dump, and the tomb of the local Muslim saint is surrounded by a roundabout. But the town has a little museum, run by one man, with a splendid collection of objects from Lepcis Magna, Oea (modern Tripoli), Ghirza, and several locations along the nearby wadis. The objects are all in a Roman-Libyan style. The visitor will find the museum east of the only hotel in the city - if it still exists: this was also the site of the final fights during the 2011 civil war.

This museum was visited in 2006, 2008.
