Half the fun here is wandering around after you've seen the museums - stop at a cafe etc. But the Archeological Museum and the handicrafts museum would be worthwhile even if they were in the middle of nowhere.

On the corner of the Castello sits this museum quarter. To be honest, the museums are only interesting for history buffs or those who like archeology. There is not much art to see, but the complex is nicely laid out.

Well worth a visit. You can witness the extent in which the Romans influenced Sardinia. Plus it is good to go when the temp outside is in excess of 100 degrees :-)

Anatomical Waxwork Museum...More

Literally the top of the hill. The site was bombed and left abandoned for WWII until the very dynamic university of Cagliari transformed in the museum complex that it is now. Visit for the museums, the site and the wonderful views.

A lot of interesting exhibits - archeological and art. The place is a bit scruffy, but inside it is nice. Stuff is very helpful and polite. Ticket price is ok.

The archaeological museum is a must see in Cagliari. The bronze age figures and the details about the Nuraghic finds in particular.

Lovely old building thoughtfully turned into art gallery but still retaining features of original architecture. Not too keen on the art displayed as not really into contemporary art.
