Discover cultural Sardinia: the top ten museums

The best museum in Sardinia
Sardinia is widely known mostly for its gorgeous beaches, for Mediterranean flavors and recipes, convivial atmosphere and breath-taking sunset on the sea. However, all these things don’t exhaust the fascination of an Island that holds a strong cultural heritage made up of ancient traditions, old manual skills, extraordinary arts and cultural diversity.
In fact, these elements add very good reasons for visitors to get to the Island throughout the whole year. Accordingly, we decided to provide you with a list of museum and cultural spaces, ranging from those most conventional, to other smaller and slightly low profile, but anyway likely to surprise you with unpredictable revelations… Have a good journey!

An open-air gallery dedicated to contemporary arts replaces a former military station dating back to the Second World War.  Between fascination and mistery, the MACC overlooks the sea.

In the heart of the small village of Orani, Nivola Museum hosts over a hundread artpieces of the painter, who is the major artist of the 900’ in Sardinia, as well as an influential figure at the international level.  
History, culture and tradition in the land of Gallura, beautiful corner of Northern Sardinia. Rooms, objects, habits of ancient lifestyle, in between courage and violence. 
Located in the inner region of Barbagia, mysterious heart of Sardinia, the Museum takes shape from the former house of Grazia Deledda, 1926 Nobel  prize for Literature, who is widely recognized for disclosing hidden Sardinia to the world through her writing. 
In a 3 building compound overlooking the hills, where the former train station used to be, the Museum hosts the memories of one of the biggest contemporary artists in Sardinia and in Italy: Maria Lai, queen of today’s design.
This is the right place if you are curious about one of the most influential figure in history, Giuseppe Garibaldi. His life, familiar spaces, furniture, in one word, his own world.
