The coach museum features some beautiful and some gaudy coaches built by Portuguese, Spanish and Italian designers. There are about 20 coaches in the main room, with another room containing conveyances used to carry a couple of people by servants, and enclosed "cabins" drawn by horses. The sculpting and detail on some coaches is amazing. The upper room was closed unfortunately, but is said to contain costumes, blankets and other items. Photography, with flash, is allowed.

The coach museum has a large collection of coaches dating from the times of kings... they are beautiful and well preserved. A must see to appreciate the value of them.

Beautiful collection of coaches and carriages. They have the oldest coach in the world; it belonged to King Filipe II of Spain. There are also the coaches of Portuguese embassy to the Pope, in the XVII century, they're magnificent and opulent. The place is superb.

The National Coach Museum (Museu Nacional dos Coches, in Portuguese) has lots of nice royal coaches from early 18th century to early 20th century, so you can see a progression of these in very good condition. It's a nice musuem a bit to the east of the San Jeronimos monastery. To confess, we visited because it was free on Sundays, but, again, to be fair, we did like it, just that we may not have paid an entrance fee to see the coaches.

Awesome, and not very expensive. On Sunday around 10 or 12 they have the changing of the guard there and it’s a whole parade with two bands, horses, marching. Very much worth a look. It’s not very big and is packed with gorgeous carriages from different times and countries. I would walk closely to a tour group and listen to their guide ;p
