Apart from the must see atractions in Lisbon but very close to them in interest is this extraordinary museum in Belem area (nearby Os Jerónimos and Belem Tower). A fine example of beautiful royal coaches, some of them exquisitely restored. Take at least a 1/2 day to see the atractions mentioned above and to eat a pastel de Belem in... More

I found this museum very interesting . It was amazing to see what wealth existed and how the Kings Quenns and Popes travelled in opulent luxury.

When I initially learned that our tour package included a tour of this museum I wasn't happy. I planned on skipping it, but at the last minute did the tour. I LOVED IT! Words can't express how much European history I learned by touring a museum of historical horse drawn coaches.

Whilst spending the day at Belem we decided to visit the National Coach Museum, We were so glad that we did. At an inexpensive 6 Euros per adult we were amazed by the age of the carriages in the museum. Also fist time I have seen a collection of litters, sedans etc. Just looking at the sumptuous fabric used gave... More

Among the many museums we visited in Lisbon this one was our favorite. A really welcome surprise. What we liked in particular was the *excellent* interactive guide, which you can download on site to your smartphone (free WIFI). The guide might seem a little childish to some but we really enjoyed, learned a few things. We liked that it doesn't... More

One of many star sights in Belem. The Museu dos Coches is overlooked by most tour companies who concentrate on the Tower, the Monument and the Jeronimos Mosteiro. Do not overlook this unique museum. It is fabulous. Their is plenty of room to see all the exhibits which have English descriptions as well as Portugese. The highlight may well be... More
