Fodor's Review

Also known as the Museo del Costume, or Costume Museum, this ethnographic collection is a must for anyone interested in the cultural context of Sardinia's customs and traditions. Among the 8,000 items in the museum's collection, you can view domestic and agricultural implements, splendid jewelry, traditional musical instruments, and dozens of local costumes. The nearby park on Sant'Onofrio Hill affords magnificent views over Nuoro and the surrounding country.
