  • What a really unique find here in Lisbon. We had the Lisbon Card which granted us free access to this museum and had a wonderful English speaking guide who just amazed us with her knowledge and passion for these amazing coaches from a time gone by. Highly recommend a visit here.
  • Fascinating museum. I would never imagine how beautiful some coaches are. They are pieces of art. This is the most extensive collection of coaches in the world. If you like art or if you are an engineer then you will enjoy this museum. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that in the 18th century, they had suspensions for coaches.
