The museum is free and is easily found by the waters edge, opposite the main street, Corso Umberto 1. We received a warm welcome from the staff. You need to leave photo ID if you wish to use the audio guide. We left our UK...More

Free to get in, take I.d. If you want to use the headphones, necessary if you don't speak Italian. Allow 1-2 hours to see it all.

Visited twice during recent holiday near Olbia. Had to come back a second time as they refuse to give you head set without leaving photo identification (passport). Archaic system which needs to be addressed. Building is impressive. Exhibits are limited in number and any descriptions...More
