  • This museum is installed in a modern building ready to receive tour groups (giant lift and corridors and spacious). In fact the scripts of city tour the include in the package. It's very interesting to see the elite form of transport in the past. For the carriage of table (because it has a table Center) used to take the other princesses Kingdom for the wedding. There are also luxury coaches for religious processions.

  • For those who like to see horse-drawn cars nothing better to leave home or work and visit the national coach Museum, the Museum is very well located, there are several types of coach but one of the most beautiful to be seeing is the Royal carriage built for King dom Luis I and used in 1957 by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England when his official visit to Portugal the chariot was pulled by six horses to breed Lusitano

  • 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.

  • 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 interesting, cool collection of carrieges from the past and from several countries. Worth visiting.
