National Coach Museum Lisbon

National Coach Museum Lisbon is an inspiring venue that celebrates the art of craftsmanship and luxury travel. Located in the heart of Lisbon, Portugal, this museum is a perfect place to explore the history of carriages and coaches used by kings and queens throughout Europe’s history. From elegant 17th-century coaches to 19th-century carriages, visitors can get a glimpse into how these luxurious means of transport were made and used by world leaders.

Established in 1905, the National Coach Museum contains over 60 carriages from different countries around the world; some dating back to the 18th century.

Each carriage has been carefully restored to its original splendor, giving visitors an authentic look into the lives of European royalty from centuries ago. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the evolution of style, design and materials used in these luxurious vehicles. Along with stunningly ornate coaches belonging to previous Portuguese royalty, there are also more modest models on show too – providing insight into how everyday people travelled through time.

Additionally, there are educational displays detailing the roles coaches played in society throughout time – from battles to royal courts – allowing guests to learn more about their significance.

A must-see destination for history lovers.
