This museum is jam packed with absolutely stunning artefacts from Sardinia, the translated descriptions on the wall are sometimes a bit hit or miss, but the vast array of immaculately preserved items on display more than makes up for it.

For the 5 euro fee this attraction is well worth a visit. The rich and in-depth history of Sardinia is well detailed over 4 floors. Excellent value and a must see.

Beuatifully organized museum with some interesting and some unique exhibits. The bronze figures from the Nuragic bronze age civilisation are superb and worth a visit on their own.

A lovely couple of hours to start to understand the complex history of Sardinia. From tiny metal sculptures to massive stone ones it is very good. I now know where Star Wars got the idea for C3PO! 😀

Sardinia has a very interesting paleolithic and iron age history (and Roman as well)--that is very unique. This is the place to learn about it. The Paleolithic people carved interesting tombs (Domus de Janus) and carved stone figures and had beautiful pottery. The Naghuri are unique to Sardinia and had wonderful statues and built huge stone towers (more than 7000... More
