A very lovely museum with lots to see plus it includes an outside exposition too. I found it wonderful. I can't forget that the staff was very kind and nice :) I recommend you stop by.

Ps.: The staff knew Spanish! We were pleasantly surprised since we know the bare minimum when it comes to Italian. They tried their best so that we could understand everything. Also there are English translations in the museum so no need to worry ;)

To enlarge the views on how varied is Italy everyone should come here to learn in an excellent 1 1/2 h tour how Phoenicians, Punics and Romans colonized this corner of Sardinia. Variety of Italy allows one to find in this very small and outlying city a full fledged, beautifully located and perfectly organized museum, allowing comprehensive learning of habits, trades and burial attitudes seen in this land over the last 5000 years. They are also provided with facilities for visually impaired visitors!
The archaeological area is relatively small but exceptionally interesting for its setting, assorted vegetation and evocation provoked by the stunning children-only ossuary.
After this visit you will ask yourself if the best season to visit Sardinia is really summer, as you feel like to see only these gorgeous archeo- things rather than going to beach...!

We happily spent a couple of hours here. The free audio guide really helped illuminate and highlight the amazing history of the island. Fabulous archaeological finds dating back to the Phonecians, the Nuragic, Romans etc.

I could also recommend the small gift shop which had some Sardinian jewellery which was of overall better quality than many of the touristic shops nearby.

There is a few vending machines selling drinks, snacks and ice cream are on site, but no restaurant or pizzeria.

Highly recommended if you are visiting the island.

Our visit happened on a rainy day, and we were not expecting an exciting visit from the museum located in this quiet corner of Sardegna - wow!
We were confronted with a very friendly guide, and an involving story of ancient cultures and their open attitude towards each other. We discovered many interesting details of the life lead hundreds of years b.C. and left our visit inspired and happy - definitely a must-see for anyone who is travelling in this area of Sardegna!
Small bonus: there is a very friendly cat who follows around along with the guided tour, and who enjoys cuddles.

Thank you to the attentive and welcoming staff of the museum!

This is a surprisingly big place, full of fascinating artefacts.
There is a video describing aspects of the pre-history and history of the island. The 'nuraghe' culture is given a high profile, but there is a lot about Punic, Phoenecian and Roman settlement too.

This visit can be combined with outdoor tophet, burial area,
From nuragic period, for just a little more money. Worth it.
Say to understand order of time periods. Very few models, just enough. Hands on exhibits for the blind. 20 minute video explaining all the sites on the island. Exhibits also in English
We could have stayed another hour easy.

The museum itself is quite well displayed, signs also in English and quite "interactive"...
the tophet is underwhelming and the usual disappointing...when you have taken a long drive..

Interesting displays, and well signed in English. The trophet is interesting to view as well. Very helpful staff, though limited in English they provide a printed translation for the outside tour.

On the day we visited the museum was open for free as the local school children were conducting a project where they explained all of the exhibits. I'm sure that they were very interesting, but my Italian is nowhere near good enough for a historical talk. Most exhibits had an English explanation, very interesting especially for those with a penchant for the Phonecians and Carthaginians.
