I visited this Museum last fall and I saw there everything I was expecting to see plus much more! Famous artifacts, such as Phoenician clay masks, then the stone and bronze sculptures left by the Nuragic civilization, coins, jewellery objects, Neolithic ceramic and other artifacts were all very interesting. The Museum has an extended schedule, tickets are available combined with... More

The Museum is worth the trip. Remember you can't easily park directly infront of it, but there are is parking in the streets around it. While on the way, look around: you can catch a beautiful view over Cagliari. The museum itself is 3/4 stories high and you will need to find your path (for those who had trouble: look... More

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.
