    The collection of pre-Roman items is unique and spectular. I was really impressed, particular by the neolithic stone statuettes, the bronze statuettes from the the 7th and 8th centuries AD, and the giant Nuragic statues of "boxers", also from the 7th and 8th centuries AD. Moreover, there is a Roman collection with some nice pieces, but you will find similar things in other museums in Italy as well.

    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 ;)

    very interesting and exceptional value, Incredible to think people actually lived in these 'rooms' in the late 20th century

    Chiara is perhaps the last person in the world, who knows the secret of sea silk. It is a must to visit her and learn about it if you are around....

    My wife and I spent an interesting two hours in the museum and got a nice overview of the history of Oristano. This, plus an hour or two at Tharros, is definitely worth while for anyone with an interest in the fascinating history of this area. Also, we definitely recommend signing up in advance for a tour of Oristano' historic center. The museum's web page gives an email address to do this. The cost is nominal and the information is well worth the time and effort. You'll enjoy it.

    This museum is close to the Museo Archeologico Nazionale and is easy to miss. It is 3€ each to enter and there is warning on the door that you may be shocked by what is within. Sure the wax models are anatomically correct with male and female reproductive organs shown amongst others , only young inquisitive minds may be shocked. We had the place to ourselves and you get a detailed booklet on entry to help out as some of the lighting is a little poor and the displays difficult to photograph. Loved it .

    Amazing experience at museum!

    We have seen much natural beauty on this side of the island and glimpses of the Sardinian mining history that has been left behind. Mute and silent, the crumbling building unable to share their story.

    Lucky for us, we were able to have it all come to life at the museum. Make sure to schedule an appointment, we tried one day but the gate is locked. The organization is ALL volunteer run and the most passionate. Francesca gave us a private tour/class answering so many of our questions and opened ideas in my brain I’ve never previously considered. I know how mining works now! The whole evolution of techniques and equipment on display because the museum is actually a previous technical school for mining students. Now returning to the old mining sites, I can identify what equipment was used for and can imagine it as it was.

    This is an affordable, fun, educational, hands on experience that I recommend completely. Visit the museum, then go see the old equipment at Nabida and monteponi after!

    Thank you Francesca!

    Worth a visit both for the view and the museum. And to get there, you walk through the old city or take bus 7 or 8.

    We purchased a family ticket for €10 which included a leaflet with information on the Basilica. It’s worth reading and highlights the points of interest in the 11th century church. Quiet, ancient place of worship with some wonderful old columns and carvings, two frescoes of saints and underneath the altar relics of Saint Simplicio.

    Particpated in a guided tour through this museum, a strange combination between seeing the bishops house (quite fun) and an alarming collection of torture-tools from the inkvisition - alarming to see the creativity invested in developing these horrible tools. Waterboarding is not a new invention...There was also a room full of herbs and we were explained about the wise women using the herbs to cure all sorts of diseases (and being prosecuted as witches during the inkvisition)...
    The very knowledgeable and kind guide was not very strong in foreign languages but did her best to answer questions..

    This forms part of the tour of the castle, it is a small museum and is separate from the castle apparently. They are both small but compliment each other perfectly as by themselves they would be too small to make the walk up the hill to the museum and castle worth it. If you are in Castelsardo give them a visit.
