mhn 03mhn 01mhn 05
Sintra has another cultural site – the new Sintra’s Museum of Natural History, where visitors may find the only specimen in the world of a species of flying reptiles, the Braseodactylus sp, or see a simulation of the big-bang.

The significance of this museum both at national and international level is due to the quality and rarity of many of its exhibits, namely some dinosaurs and nests of dinosaur eggs from the Gobi Desert, in China, or fragments of the Nantan (China) meteorite that fell in the 16th century.
