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.

When a queen of Portugal realized that cars were replacing horse drawn carriages she decided to protect these fantasy modes of a bygone era. Some people may be bored here but the sheer amount of carriages in their golden splendor and great condition is awesome...More

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

This was our last stop on our day trip to Belem, quite late in the afternoon. By this time, we were weary, so only visited the old riding school part, not the new building opposite the train tracks. There's only so much I can take...More

I've actually seen a few coaches displayed throughout Europe in different countries, but this is the best of them. From very early models to the high of extravagance, this museum has them all. We arrived close to opening time and had the museum all to...More

I don't think there is an audio guide but the English information in front of each coach was well done.
We are staying at the Real Palacio Hotel in Lisbon so how would we be best to get to this museum. It is on our list of things to see. Is there public transit we can get there?? Thanks for any help given.
