Well presented nuraghi which was discovered under another building. Good layout to the sight and a photogenic small church nearby. Worth visiting on trip to or from Su Nuraghi. Nuraghi is undercover so good for inclement weather day.

An interesting place to see, adding some information and context to the famous Su Nuraxi. Also, beautifully arranged exposition of the nuraghe laying directly underneath the Zapata palace. Our guide, Marcela, was very knowledgeable.

This museum housed more nuragic ruins as well as some of the artifacts that were typical of the era. The National Archaeological Museum in Cagliari had more items, and had prepared us well for Casa Zapata, but the latter was still worth a visit.

Yes this museum is included in the ticket for Su Nuraxi and it shouldn't be missed if you want a good background and understanding of life in the Bronze era. We visited before going on to Su Nuraxi and were pleased to have seen some...More

This museum is really y set up so you can read everything in 4 languages, and its a great companion piece to the Barumini excavation which is 'next door'. The other museum is less interesting but has an incredible array of artiginale gifts.
