  • Who knew the old carriages Museum is disappointed with this new. It cost several tens of milhões de euros, a building, cool and modern, but without any of the multimedia solutions that would give "more color" those walls. I feel really disappointed with these new facilities. However, the carts themselves are magnificent and very demonstrative of a golden age of Portuguese history.

  • 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!! 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.
  • One of the most visited museums of Lisbon. The museum has one of the best and well preserved collection of coaches and carriages in the world. Free Wi-Fi and free entrance with Lisbon card.
  • €8 for an interesting collection of coaches in two fancy buildings. A nice change from the typical museum, especially on a rainy day. With free wifi too.
  • Very interesting, cool collection of carrieges from the past and from several countries. Worth visiting.
