  • In Lisbon you can find the best world’s royal coach collection; you’ll find vehicles from the end of the sixteen century until the end of the nineteen century. It’s difficult to choose a best one but ...  more »
  • Is a program for the whole family, it may not feel like it, but turns out to be very interesting. For a long time wanted to meet and I defer so much that now are no longer with the whole collection in the original building. Better this way, I was able to visit two (be sure to pay the extra to see the old building tbém). Is a stroll through the history and evolution of the carriages, costumes of the Coachmen, tools, history of the events where they were used. All very well maintained and with explanations. It's worth it!

  • Pure disappointment. So many milhões spent to make this Museum a worldwide tourist spot and that managed to build an expensive warehouse where are exposed beautiful coches. The information assists the better knowledge of each one of the pieces is very old. I wonder if there aren't a few bucks for a information on digital and even interactive templates??? Too bad that does not have tb left change to decorate the walls and ceilings in order to make this space a cozy instead of cold and without any identity. A disappointment. A bad example of misuse of public funds.

  • An impressive, fantastic collection of ceremonial royal coaches throughout history. They are some more modern stage coaches too. The driverless units were interesting. That's all there is.
  • Very nice!! Simply a display of old royal coaches from long ago. No spectacular multimedia fanfare.. just coaches playing and simple. The facilities are great at this location though the janitorial staff should focus more on cleaning the bathrooms than gossiping in the bathroom.
  • We absolutely loved visiting here. It was a surprisingly interesting way to learn some Portuguese history while also enjoying superb craftsmanship of really old carriages. It was a surprise find for us but really should be on everyone's itinerary when visiting the Belem part of Lisbon
  • Very nice and organised place. Carriages are awesome and huge, it change all you know about old method for transportation.
  • Very interesting, cool collection of carrieges from the past and from several countries. Worth visiting.
