I must say I was expecting to see some old coaches meaning posh buses. I didn’t - these are old coaches pulled by horses. Still, it was a very interesting hour looking at these. I was fascinated by the amount of detail on the carvings...More

This museum featuring numerous ornate coaches from multiple centuries is well worth a visit. Nicely displayed with room to view from all sides, plan to spend an hour if you are merely curious or more if you like.

Go to the old museum first-- only 2 Euros more, and you get to see the beautiful old building itself (a former royal riding school, as I understand it). Highly decorated interior, with some really nice coaches. Then head over to the relatively sterile new...More

If you have a fascination with history and transportation, this museum is a must. Cinderella’s coach could not come close to these Royal rides. Inaugurated originally in 1905, the museum moved to its spacious new building in 2015 to make room for the more than...More

Visit to Lisbon is incomplete without visiting the Museum of coaches. There are two of them but we visited the one which I suppose is the newer one. The coaches displayed are awesome. They depict the royal lifestyle of the kings and queens of that...More

The museum was recommended to us by a local tour guide. It is split over two sites and costs €10 entry to both. Certainly the largest collection of its type I've ever seen. It's worth a visit.
