  • Marvels to watch, goes back in the past, carriages of a majestic and so well preserved beauty

  • I was not very excited at the idea of making this Museum and I came because it's free with the lisboa card. But I was pleasantly surprised. The carriages are superb and perfectly preserved.

  • I think the visit is worth it. But divided the Museum in two, half of the collection is a more modern building in front. With that charge "two". Many old carriages are available and very well preserved and restored. A flying visit.

  • 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.
