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...

A very well presented exhibition. Almost all the descriptions were translated into English. From the first horse drawn trams to today's Metro. Allow a couple of hours to absorb it all. The brief tram ride to and from section 2 was an unexpected bonus and...More

We visited this museum on our last day in Lisbon. It is good value and really interesting. Only 4 euros to get in it is worth a visit if the weather is bad or you are looking for something to do.
