This is a great place to spend a few hours if you are into history. The exhibits trace the development of the Olbia area from the Bronze Age to Roman times. Lots of artifacts displayed in cases and on the floor that include Roman ships...More

Our trip to this museum was quite quick as we didn’t accept the audio guide...forgetting that we can’t read Italian and so couldn’t read about any of the artefacts.
