Interesting to know how life was lived in Sardinia from some thousand years to the Roman empire and compare it to the present day. There is no proof of the purpose of the Nuraghi.

This collection is good, filled with local archaeology, and the cases correctly labelled. The building is an original one built by the founding donors, and has a real period charm. THere is also a gallery of paintings, but we didn't have time to see them.

If you love archeology, this is the place to visit. Many artefacts from Neolithic to Roman times. The other museum to rival this is in Perfugas which also boasts a sacred well and a XVII century retablo. Highly recommended.
