Interesting remains of old boats found at the bottom of the harbour, and a small but well displayed collection of recent, local archaeological finds. Wonderful modern building. The architect was clearly inspired by its setting on a promontary in the harbour, and by its unique collection ships.
First things first: it's free. And that means one should give it a try when in the area. And one should bring their passport otherwise there is no audio guide (a bit strange idea IMO). The museum is located in a modern and huge building. Some parts of the exhibition are made with a great sense for detail, other rooms... 更多
We visited on a Saturday morning when youngsters from local schools are delegated and trained to show visitors round all the sites and sights of Olbia, churches ruins, museums etc. They are only too happy to show you around and if you get lucky they will speak a little of your language. No matter if they don't because if you... 更多
The museum is located in a modern and, by the looks of it, quite expensive building. However the collection is utterly forgettable. Ironically, when asked if we could have a look at the ships (from a major archeological find of Roman and Medieaval shipwrecks in the harbour of Olbia) we were very kindly referred to the roof terrace to look... 更多
The museum must have cost a lot of money but is now in need of repairs,flaking plaster and housekeeping could be better,bird droppings outside the door not a good impression ..!! It's was free to get in and the audio guides were also free,we were most impressed with the boat timbers that have been found and are being preserved but... 更多
Impressive place giving a really good picture of the history of Olbia. Really nice exposition of items found and good explanations. when you are interested in these things this museum is a must see!
The museum, housed in a very modern building, contains artifacts from Olbia's ancient history. Unlike many other museums it is not stuffed full of exhibits and is a pleasant space to wander around. The Roman ship exhibit is excellent but the explanatory videos are in Italian only.
Well, what is there, certainly isn't similar to the exhumed wreck of the Mary Rose, nor the recovered wreck of the Batavia, but this is Sardinia, and not London, or Perth, Australia. What is in the museum are the recovered ribs of an ancient ship, displayed as they would have been, to form the framework of the craft. These artifacts... 更多
In the cultural desert that is Olbia, the museum is well worth a visit. Easy to find, free to enter, and a free audio guide. MAJOR WARNING...although the audio is free you must leave a passport or photo ID as a deposit. They temporarily lost my passport, but I think permanently lost a distraught Norwegians ID - giving it to... 更多
