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.

It is a museum spread out in two halls. I got to see a carriage dating back to the 17th-18th century and One can see the evolution from those days to the era of the car.

This museum is really outstanding, both its contents and the building itself. Once you visit it, you will understand why it´s so popular among locals and tourists, in spite of being a theme museum, focused in historical carriages, what might not be appealing for everybody....More

I don't think there is an audio guide but the English information in front of each coach was well done.

Hi there's plenty of public transport to Belem. You can't get there by metro but by bus or tram. We were staying in the Alfama district and were able to get a bus directly from Santa Apolonia station which took about 20... More
