  • The museum displays archaeological finds coming from the town of Sant'Antioco is from other locations of Sulcis. Accompanied by information panels, the exhibition illustrates the various phases of the settlement on the site since the first traces of human presence in prehistoric times. The ancient Phoenician-Punic city of Sulky, revived in a plastic model, is represented through the rich materials from the excavations conducted in various areas of the town: everyday objects, architectural elements, funerary Carthaginians and Romans. Significant pottery, both of use such as bowls, plates, vases, oil lamps, and those rituals, primarily pitchers with fungus or bilobed. Valuable jewellery, such as rings and ridges, often digital golden earrings and necklaces; many amulets made of bone, metal, glass and stone. Particular emphasis is given to the tomb of via Belvedere: it is the most ancient Punic Tomb found at Sant'Antioco. The tophet is represented by a stratigraphic Panel and exposure of steles and urns. Of great interest are the reproductions of the Phoenician and Punic warships and transport. The visit completes an archaeological tour which includes the tophet and the necropolis and illustrates the history of an important and ancient urban center. Among the highlights of the Museum collection gold ring decorated with fine scallops and enamels of the fourth century. BC and the jar perfumes door depicting the God Nilo (VI century BC). There is a free guided tour, also themed for schools on specific topics such as ceramics, sculpture and glass in a particular historical period. The bookshop is open. The Museum has a library with books. The Museum organizes workshops on drawing and ceramics, for groups limited to a few guys (reservation required). There are no architectural barriers in the exhibition hall, but the bathrooms are accessed by stairs. A showcase equipped offers reproductions for a tactile path. I found it culturally interesting.

  • It is a small museum featuring the modern layout, pleasant, with artifacts (some interesting) ranging from the Neolithic to the Roman period, explanatory models and reconstructions. The next guided tour of the tophet, a place rich in meaning, suggestive and disturbing, archeologically valuable, greatly enhances the value of the total time elapsed between these cases and what remains of the Phoenician-Punic sanctuary dating back at least 2500 years ago. Lastly the competence, friendliness and passion for our work that we found in the Guide.

  • We spent a wonderful afternoon in Sant'Antioco visiting the archaeological museum and the tophet, the moving ' graveyard ' dead children during pregnancy or shortly after birth (there are only 3 or 4 throughout the Mediterranean area). An excellent example of care and conservation of the territory, were it not that overtime operators supporting it with dedication and preparation living in uncertainty as to the willingness of the authorities to continue to open for visitors to this extraordinary place. Some precious relics have long been under restoration, the excavations in the archaeological area are stationary. We hope the difficulties can be overcome and this gem is also dealt with by the responsible authorities with all the respect it deserves. A sincere thanks to our talented guide Daniela.

  • Important Phoenician site. Extensive toffet
  • The Museum has an extensive collection of Phoenician and Roman artifacts found in the necropolis of the city of Sulci (la romana Sulci). Very interesting section on Tophet, the shrine where the remains were placed Phoenician dead children during early childhood. After the visit to the museum guides will accompany you to visit the site of the tophet.

  • Very nice Museum structure and organization, showcases and dioramas of unique beauty, excellent explanatory panels, great guides, prepared and with kindness. In the hope that more and more funds are allocated by Government for maintaining these glimpses of history that belong to us is that it is our duty to carry forward for future generations.
