The Antiquarium Arborense, founded in 1938, is the most important museum in the province of Oristano: it shows a large number of archaeological finds which date back to different ages (Neolithic, Nuragic, Punic and Roman period), coming from the...more
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...More
This museum is a little tucked away and the proper entrance ( through an archway ) is poorly signposted , as we walked past it and went in via a rear entrance that looked like the main entrance ( they still let us in 🙂)...More
The Antiquarium is a tribute to archeological research in the Mediterranean. An introduction movie shows the history from researches in Mycene to Tharros. The museum is not really big and shows a lot of pottery and some sculptures from Tharros. But the model of that...More

thank you very much for your review, we are glad you appreciate our little but interesting museum.

One of many excellent small museums that we found on Sardinia. Great building and terrifically curated. Nice staff. You can arrange a free 2 hr walking tour for the price of admission but we missed out because it was Sunday and there was only us.
Right in the centre, this small museum has some interesting local artefacts going back thousands of years.The large model of Tharros is a must-see after you visit the ruins on the Sini peninsula- it makes sense of the site which is absent on the ground.Pleasant...More
This museum is very nice. It isn't real big but they have some interesting items and the displays are well marked and included English in the text. There is an interesting video that can be shown in a number of languages that describes the various...More
We were treated to a short documentary about the region so it is worth going early in your holiday for this information. The museum has Roman and Bronze Age exhibits, their is a model of how Tharros would have looked like in its heyday. Also,...More
We've been to this Antiquarium in November 2013. The museum is devided into several areas relative to the period of objects. There is a multimedia zone where you can watch a video about Sardinia's main sightseeings.
Overall impression is positive; it is not a must-see...More
I am sorry to say this museum is not worth neither money nor time. It is quite small, you can spend there no more than 30-40 minutes even if you walk slowly. All in description in Italian language, the only interesting thing is model of...More
