Located right next to the water in Olbia, you will find Olbia's very own Archaeological Museum. It's the one major museum in Olbia, and as a result, showcases all of the major openings and concerts in town. The museum contains many ancient artifacts, cultivated from Sardinia as well as other parts of Italy. Because the town of Olbia was established in the BC by the Romans, many artifacts from ancient Romans are held within the museum's walls. On weekends, the museum comes alive with music and after hours fun.
