Description

The Museum of Lourinhã spans three thematic areas – Archaeology, Ethnography and Palaeontology. Particular care is given to the research, preservation and knowledge dissemination of the region’s rich paleontological heritage (Lourinhã is very rich in fossils from the Upper Jurassic). The museum’s collection includes several important findings, a few of which are new species to Science, or holotypes, which confer to the Museum the statuses of national and international scientific reference.
