WHY VISIT THE PARC MUSEUM?

PARC Museum was crated with a well-defined goal: to be a workshop museum!

For this reason, more than half of the museum is dedicated to educational activities, with tables, seats, but above all scientific instruments to simulate the work of the paleontologist and archaeologist available to visitors.

The visit and all the activities always pay attention for families and children, but a spectacular collection of fossils makes the museum attractive also for specialists. The archaeological section faces, and shows, a unique archaeological site: the deepest nuragic well in Sardinia, over 40m.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM

The paleontological section illustrates the general notions of paleontology and geology, necessary for the knowledge of the history of the earth. This section displays the collection of local fossils. All the pieces are restored and classified by the Department of Earth Sciences of Cagliari and by the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Sassari and Nuoro.

The paleontological path begins in front of two blocks of sandstone rich in sea urchins: Clypeaster with a typical bell-shaped discoid shape, Scutelle and Parascutelle, always sea urchins, but with a flattened discoidal shape, and bivalve shells.
The introduction to the exhibition of fossils is told by an explanatory panel on the mechanisms of fossilization accompanied by examples illustrated in the adjacent showcase.
Continuing we arrive at the gigantography that portrays the Geosite of Duidduru, flanked by a diorama on the life of the organisms that today we find in the fossil state. The showcases are sorted by families and a small lithology section illustrates the most common rocks that we can find in nature.

In the archaeological section the Nuragic, Punic and Roman discoveries of the area are told. You can admire a model of the top of the hill of Santu Antine with the reconstruction of the Roman church, the Punic fortifications, the nuraghe and the deepest Nuragic well of Sardinia. This wing of the museum is completed by a 1: 1 diorama of the bottom of the well and reproductions of the finds found inside.

FURTHERMORE, in the archaeological section of the museum it is possible to see the interior of the nuragic well of Santu Antine thanks to video and it is also possible to simulate the flight over the Jars thanks to the latest generation of viewers.

School trips and educational workshops are an integral part of the PARC museum life. The laboratory is the largest section of the museum where children independently or accompanied by teachers or families can use the instrumentation and simulate the work of the paleontologist… MORE INFO
