Tunisia's national museum on Tuesday delayed a planned reopening after last week's attack on foreign tourists due to security concerns, its head of communications Hanene Srarfi told AFP.
"We have been surprised at the last minute, but the interior ministry says that for security reasons we cannot receive a large number of visitors," she said, adding that an official ceremony marking the reopening of the museum would still go ahead.
Officials at the Bardo Museum had planned to allow the public back in on Tuesday, six days after an attack claimed by the Islamic State group killed 21 people.
