The Nalut Dinosaur Museum is an archaeological museum located in the Amazigh town of Nalut, western Libya. It was opened in 2007.

The fossils, which date from the Cretaceous period, were first discovered in 1998 by two brothers working in a quarry in one of the mountains in northeast of the town.

It was estimated that the dinosaurs that lived in the area of Nalut were nearly 16 meters tall, 6 meters high, and weighed nearly 8000 kilograms.
