Entry on a combined ticket with Su Nuraxi and Giovanni Lillu. An old (16th century) family palace that was built on a historic nuraghi site that was excavated. There are guided tours only, so check the hours. The site is unique combination of the glass footbridges over the remains of nuraghe and a rare example of Hispanic civil architecture in upper parts of the building. Quite interesting.

The house is awesome, really well designed in a really typical place. Also: there is a nice church in the same square. The exposers where the ancient objects are exposed are dark and not really well positioned, sometimes it's not possible to see them correctly.

The entrance to the Casa Zapata Museum is included in the ticket to Su Nuraxi di Barumini.
We found the museum something of a let down after Su Nuraxi, which is amazing.
We had about 35 minutes here with a tour group. There is a lack of English at the museum, so we were lucky to have an English speaking guide to talk to us.
Nevertheless we did not find it that interesting.

As the Barumini entrance includes access to this house, we went along to discover many more archeological areas and amazing history behind all the discoveries and what has been done to keep the sites intact.
Lovely addition to the Barumini area as to show you the other developments done through the ages.

We went there after Su Nuraxi just to see the kind of objects people were capable of making 3200 years ago. It was such a great visit... Although in the middle of the summer, we were totally alone in the house and at the entrance we were proposed a guided visit from a very valuable person who told us everything about this particular house based of very special foundations... definitely worth visiting... we feel so sorry we are not even able to remember our guide’s name...

Don't just visit the Nuraghi and then leave. Definitely worth an hour at this museum too. Lots of remains to see and a fantastic model of the Nuraghi that had been found at the site. Loved learning from the display boards all about St Efisio and also the info on the Sardinian local musical instruments.

The guide was very knowledgeable but her English was difficult to understand. The artefacts displayed do not have information in English.

Wrong information from the reception. All information was in Italian though I asked specifically about the information in English before I got tickets.
Nice place to visit but prepare yourself for every information about it.

We visited this place as a part of the combined ticket to Su Nuraxi site. Casa Zapata is a nice museum but in my opinion it's worth a visit only if you have visited Su Nuraxi first. The Archaeological Section is very interesting and you can see there many beautiful findings dated back to Nuraghi age and nuraghe building in the foundations of the palace.
Some parts of the exhibition were unfortunately without English description and in Archaeological Section were some tablets with information missing or turned off. What a pity!

Navštívili jsme toto místo, protože je součástí vstupenky na Su Nuraxi. Casa Zapata je hezké muzeum, ale z mého pohledu nestojí za samostatnou návštěvu a celkově je vhodné předtím vidět Su Nuraxi. Skvělá je archeologická sekce, kde můžete vidět nálezy datované do nuragské doby a také jeden z nuragů přímo v základech paláce.
Některé části výstavy jsou bohužel bez anglických popisků a jinde zase zcela chyběly, nebo byly vypnuté, tablety s dodatečnými informacemi.

about 70 km from cagliari, this is a complementary visit to Su nuraxi, it is a good palace built on top of a nuraghi. Do not miss it. Price: included in the Su nuraxi ticket. visit with guide included.
