It was in January 2012 that the first negotiations began with a view to the creation of the dinosaur park. The cooperation agreement between the Municipality of Lourinhã and Dinosaurierpark of Münchenagen was signed at the same time.
The construction of the park was initiated in 2017, believing that it will be an anchor project with great impact on the tourism development of the region, for its importance at cultural, educational and entertainment level.
The Dino Parque is an outdoor museum, in an area of 10 hectares, including 4 tracks corresponding to some of the most important epochs in the history of the Earth: The end of the Paleozoic, the Triassic, the Jurassic and the Cretaceous.
Throughout these tracks, visitors can see more than 120 models of dinosaurs and other animals on the real scale. The park was specially designed to be an "Edutainment" (Education + Entertainment) experience, combining the knowledge of the evolution of the Earth, but also the fun part for the whole family.
Beside the outdoor tracks, in entrance and the central building of the Dino Parque can be visited the exhibition of the Museu da Lourinhã, with its fantastic paleontological collection . In the laboratory, it is also possible to observe, in real time, the preparation of fossils.The park also offers an area of activities, where visitors can experience some paleontology skills
