The Archaeological Museum is dedicated to the sea and the ancient ships.
It is full of displays and historical reconstructions boasting splendid rooms dedicated to portraying the territory. The most beautiful room is probably the one devoted to the sea, Mare. Here you can discover not only how freight used to be loaded on ships, but also how some have been rediscovered. There are samples of findings from the Punic, Roman, and Medieval ages. The Sala del Santuario (room of the sanctuary) is no exception, displaying findings from the Phoenician temple and its Punic and Roman successors at Cuccureddus site.
