Owner description: Carris is pleased to make public its memories and its contribution to Lisbon's growth for more than a century. This city has developed along with its public transport system.The existence of the Museum has two distinct and complementary reasons. The first concerns the creation of a collection based on historical and valuable objects, to ensure a global and updated knowledge of the company. The second aspect is the exposure of patrimony in order to contribute to the cultural development of the community and also to consolidate the company's image among the public. Internally, the Museum enhances human performance of its staff by strengthening their professional integrity, thanks to a deeper knowledge of the company.Carris Museum allows the visitor to take a journey through time using documents and objects that are placed at their disposal: reports, photos, uniforms, transport tickets, workshop equipment, trams, buses...

“Excellent museum of transport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This museum will appeal to anyone interested in public transport. The collection of old trams and buses, plus transport memorabilia, is large. British visitors may be particularly interested in some of the buses and trams which were built in the UK or assembled in Portugal with British-supplied parts. The various parts of the museum are connected by an old tram, whose driver is invariably friendly and hospitable. Easily accessible from the city centre or Belem by tram 15.

“Carris Museum Expanded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The Carris Museum added an additional section in September 2012 featuring additional buses. The shuttle tram links all three sections. I notice something new every time I come here. Great experience for transport enthusiasts!

“For Tram Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

As we were passing we thought that we would look at the museum as the city makes a great deal out of their old trams. The museum was very quiet and it seemed as if we had a personal visit. The information regarding the history was good but the ride in the tram to the tram shed was the highlight. This is a tram spotters paradise (I'm not one but really enjoyed the experience.)
