There is a very nice video to start then there are two rooms, the first of local masks & costumes, the second is masks & costumes for as far as Spain, Greece & Croatia. It's not huge, but I thought well worth it.

Very interesting wooden masks and costumes. Starts with a 10 min. video to understand some of the traditional and festivals masks and clothing. Fair price €5 / adult. Not a big museum.

Well made museum, good guides which tell you everything about carnival of Mamutones in Mamoiada. You can discover there the great culture of central part of Sardinia and their traditions. This museum is worth seeing!

A video to show the festival and some traditional clothing of the pagan and of the "owners". Unsure why 8€ are charged. IMHO 2€ is a max to request for a two room venue, that is checked within 15 min visit.
