  • The visit to this museum is essential to understand the civilization of the nuraghi and the discovery of all their sites through Sardinia. You will discover statues in bronze of warriors whose postures may remind some of the characters of Asterix (I am thinking of a head perched on a shield carried by two warriors. At introduce, absolutely.

  • This is an absolute architectural gem, perfectly combining modern concrete with ancient walls. Well worth a visit even if you don't enter the museum, which is also good
  • The archaeological museum building looks new and the exhibition in the basement is organized chronologically from neolithic into bronze age and end with Middle ages. Many bronze warrior statues were very impressive. Here all the texts are both in Italian and English with many pictures and maps. Once you go upstairs to see the rest of the museum things become very confused, there's a mix of neolithic, Roman and nuraghic finds - with no clear pattern and no English explanations. On the top floor there's a exhibition with stone statues which has English descriptions, but it reads like more like poetry than a scientific explanation of the finds, so the context is lost to the visitor. Many displays were not functioning, although they looked quite new. Could have been made much better, now it looks like a quickly finished project
  • Interesting!
  • Nice museum but only part of the texts have translations next to the Italian texts.
  • Great exhibition
