Of course, it's easier to be a great museum when you have extraordinary artifacts to display... the Nurraghic civilization is compelling in and of itself, but the items are displayed & described in a manner that draws you in deeper.

This museum has artefacts dating back to 5000bc and is of historic interest in that it explains much of the islands early history. It is well worth a visit, but be aware that many of the exhibits lack any English explanations.

Artefacts from the early stone-age inhabitants of Sardenga dating back to approx 1000 BC right through Phoenician and Roman occupation. Extremely well presented, an absolute must fro anyone with an interest in archaeology and human settlement.

This place is a must see because it shows you the evolution of the Sardinian's teritory: starting with Naruxi formation period until our ages. There is also information in english 🙂

Sardinia has a complicated and very interesting history and this museum serves as a great introduction. Interestingly arranged exposition, especially about the Nuraghic culture. Clearly parts of exposition on the higher floors are still awaiting some refurbishment. Also, it would be great if the descriptions...More
