The artefacts from the Nuragi are amazing & well displayed. it's worth going to the top floor to see the giants Not enough translations into other languages though. we often found an interesting object to look at but had no idea of what it was, how old etc

The displays are presented well with good explanations. For a nice modern museum, the bathrooms are horrendous, stand up, no running water, no working lights, filthy, no door locks, etc.

The pride and joy of their collection are pieces from an iron age civilization called Nuragica. They seem to followed a form of ancestor worship and scattered across tombs across the island were little bronze figures representing different types of people (the Shepard king for example) and big limestone statues representing the ancestors of particularly powerful families. I'm still looking... More

The museum was well displayed but would have been better with more English Language translations. Disliked the old toilets.

You could spend hours in this extremely well set up museum of the history of Sardinia and its ancient peoples. Well displayed. Well labelled. Air conditioned. You could not ask for more. Reasonable entrance charge.

I spent two hours wandering the collections in this museum in the heart of the historical centre of Cagliari and emerged filled with awe. For people (like me) who had no idea of the unique pre-history and history of Sardegna, this is a great place to begin the journey of discovery.

I was looking forward to seeing the articles in this museum, particularly the Nuraghic and Roman items. The items are quite extensive which is great. The downside is the layout - the layout is geographic, so items found in the same general area are grouped together. That isn't obvious, and means that you may run across the same type of... More

The objects on display at the museum are fantastic, and it is worth visiting just to look and get a better idea of the rich history of settlement in Sardinia from the earliest times to the Roman period. However, the presentation is confused and very dull and old fashioned. It shouldn't be difficult to make such great material engaging. Better... More

This museum is only recently opened after the archaeology program that commenced in the area in the 1970's. Many historical objects to view - and "The Giants" have to be seen. It is a nice size and 2 hours will be ample when you have time.

I was little surprised when I read some of latest reviews of Archeological Museum of Cagliari in TripAdvisor. Some reviews seem to focus on the fact that museum was closed on Monday (museums in Italy generally are closed on Monday) or that the toilet was uncomfortable - because of that they have given 1 or 2 stars. These reviews seem... More
