This museum is tucked away in the museum area at the top of the hill past the Duomo, if you aren't looking you might miss it! If you are interested in the distant past of Sardinia's history - the archeological periods several thousand years past - then this is the museum. It is very well laid out, with lots of... More

This is one of the best archaeological museums we have visited. The exhibits are excellent, the signage is multi-lingual, and there are time lines for context with other civilizations. It is not a huge museum, easy to see all of it and then go on to some of the other nearby small museums. This museum is a must see.

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! 😀
