Opening days and times
Memory and inspiration. Our town, your museum.
The Archaeological Museum of Alghero was set up to gather, preserve and communicate the town’s historical, social and cultural memory.
The collection houses artefacts discovered during excavations of the urban and inhabited areas. These records date back to the first human settlements in the area and span from the Neolithic to Middle Ages.
The museum also offers a hitherto unseen and privileged view of places that can no longer be physically used and which are still the subject of archaeological investigations and anthropological studies.
The history of the building
The MŪSA Archaeological Museum of Alghero is housed in one of the city’s historical buildings.
Over the centuries it has changed its intended use several times: from a warehouse adjoining the Jesuit College church to an infantry militias’ barracks; from a district prison to a boxing and fencing gym, but above all a place of social gathering for post-war youth.
Its walls, in perfect synergy with the collection held within, communicate to us the historical, social and cultural memory of Alghero.
Tales from the finds
The MŪSA offers you a selection of the collection’s most significant exhibits, with plenty of stories to tell.
Dedicated to all those who wish to discover the museum with an alternative view.
You will be accompanied, step by step, along a path of total immersion into the history of Alghero and its territory. From Ancient Neolithic to Post Middle Ages. A "taster" in line with the Museum’s identity and its most characteristic features.
Now let’s start...enjoy your visit!
