We felt a little disappointed because the museum looked like unfinished. Need more information about the coach. Seems like you enter in a garage of coach with anything else. Also, the building itself don't match with the museum theme. The coaches were great, but is...More

What a great museum. The coaches are antique and quite beautiful. Definitely worth a visit! Buy a combo ticket to also see the old museum across the street.

Apparently there is a big museum of carriages, but it was closed when I visited Belem, so this review is only for the old museum of coaches, housed at the former royal stables. The coaches are interesting in themselves, but they are badly lit, and...More

The museum has an enormous quantity of carriages from all times. It includes Portuguese carriages and foreign ones as well. All of them incredible well preserved. If you look history it's definitely a must seen while in Belen-Lisbon. Sunday's mornings are free.

Went in free on the 1st Sunday of the month. Thought it seemed a rather odd idea for a museum but was prepared to be convinced- very unimpressed! The coaches we did see were pretty shabby, there was almost no information, there was a large...More

Very interesting collection that takes you thru history. Ladies and men will enjoy this exhibition. I particularly enjoyed the firemen section.

I don't think there is an audio guide but the English information in front of each coach was well done.

Hi there's plenty of public transport to Belem. You can't get there by metro but by bus or tram. We were staying in the Alfama district and were able to get a bus directly from Santa Apolonia station which took about 20... More
