In the last post I wrote about the funky small specialty museums all over Lisbon, and mentioned my visit to the old National Coach Museum. Well, there’s a much bigger and more modern coach museum, 2-min walk away from the old one, housed in a contemporary large hall, with an even larger selection of coaches. It’s a very well done museum, with extensive descriptions in English throughout, and guides to answer your questions and point out the interesting bits (e.g., if you raise the seats, there’s a hole serving as a toilet seat, that’s functional!).
Have a look…
Combine the mew coach museum with the old coauch museum nearby. Definitely worth a visit if you’re exploring the western Lisbon area.
