The collection:  in the Museum they are kept the archaeological remains who come from the search that the University of Cagliari makes in the territory of Laconi.

The heart of the collection is constituted from 40 monoliths (menhir) of prenuragical age, some of remarkable dimensions.

Among these they distinguish themselves the protoanthropomorphous and the anthropomorphous menhir and the male and female statues-menhir.
