A superb museum, modern displays, with rich collections filling large cases. The whole of Sardinian Archaeology is here, and much of it is magnificent. There are clean toilets, good cafe, excellent souvenir shop. Closed on Mondays.

If you are in the center of Cagliari, you should visit this museum. The exhibits are presented in a clear, educational way. The explanations help to understand the history of the island and all the objects found in the archeological sites.

A great introduction to the nuraghic civilisation with beautiful items carefully set out and explained. Some good Roman pieces too. Toilet facilities limited.

What a magnificent and well-organized museum! I could have spent an entire day enjoying and learning from the displays. If one is interested in the history and prehistory of Sardinia, this is a wonderful place to begin an education. Photos without flash are allowed and...More
