This was a wonderful surprise! I found out about this museum after going to Pavilhão do Conhecimento in Lisbon, and seeing a dinossaur exhibit with some exclusive dinos. At Museu da Lourinhã you can find several areas. You have a very interesting room about the...More

It's cheap to get in at only 4 euro an adult, and 2 for kids. Dinosaur stuff is interesting seeing as they are native to Lourinha. There are some decent fossils excavated locally. The rest of the museum was a bit naff. We managed to...More

You need to pay to enter this museum which is located in the town. There is much to see and a lot of the material comprises of posters and photos with very few actual relics and exhibits

Lourinhã is one of world important sites for dinosaurs, with some specimens only found here in the region of Lourinhã and Atalaia. The museum offers a nice tour around this spectacular fact, in a small scale, but with a high level of scientific rigor. To...More

Very nice museum. Kids loved it. Apart from the dinosaurs also has some items on agriculture and local ways of living in the past.

We visited the museum primarily for the dinosaur relics. Unfortunately, all of the museum's nicest dinosaur objects have been moved to the new dinosaur parc outside the town, leaving little of interest. No longer worth the 4€ if you are interested in the dinosaur objects.

You don't even need to go in to the museum (which is fairly small) to get the most of a visit. There are loads of dino statues all about the town and a trail to follow. The museum as said is small but there are...More

This is a small museum dedicated to the Dinossaurs found in Lourinhã and also to the ancient agriculture activities around this region. Both areas are very interesting and make it a nice tour to do with your small kids.
