Not very much to do here but a cute place to go away from all the tourists and the coaches are truly fabulous. Something you would not see elsewhere and a change from the normal
Places to go. Also, the small museum

Just besides overcrowded Jeronimos monastery lies modern museum of coaches without ticket office line. While the building is not very impressive, the shown carriages definitely are. Kings coaches, children's coaches, even first (French-made) automobile imported to Portugal are all on display, some with unbelievable decorations....More
Got off the Grey Line HO/HO bus at the Coach Museum. Toured the museum with the fantastic coaches from the early days of the Portuguese empire through the invention of the gasoline powered auto in 1895. Many were similar in appearance, but there were some...More
This is a fun and interesting place to visit, particularly if you are on a group tour with an excellent guide who can fill in the blanks of what to look for. The nuances and anecdotes were fantastic as described by our guide, Paula. After...More
... not worth going to see in and of itself.
While it is impressive to have all that tangible history together in one place, the collection manages to be too much and too little all at once. Too much, in that all the coaches kind...More
The Carriage Museum is in a new and beautiful modern shrine that houses around 70 vintage carriages from the royal collection. They date as far back as the 17th century. The carriages are in fantastic condition and displayed in a huge and well executed space....More

I have been to the new museum a few years ago. By the time it left me a bitter-sweet feeling because the old museum was fantastic although very packed. This time both visit and experience were totally different! As soon as we entered, we were...More
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and
delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
