Honestly, I had bigger expectations as far as coral museum was concerned. Neither I nor my friend were impressed by the limited exposition. We found jewelry shops in Sardinia more impressing.

A very interesting and informative museum. It shows the history of the region with respect to the coral. It is a trip to the past that shows the work of the fishermen of the region.

Worth visiting if you have an hour to spare. Gives a good introduction to red coral and it's historical importance for Alghero. Don't expect a critical presentation on the destruction of coral reefs. The presentation is not quite neutral. One senses a certain influence from...More
