Surprising to see royal coaches with explanations in English. When you are in Belèm, I recommend you to stop by this museum. This museum is a minute away from the bus stop or the tram station.

The coach museum is in a grand and large new building. The coaches are displayed in a very effective manner and makes for a grand experience. The museum was peaceful during our visit and a welcome break.
