National Coach Museum

Lisbon, Portugal

The museum, which houses a collection of crews of the royal family. It was created with the participation of the last Queen of Portugal Amelia, as she wanted to save the carriages and show them to the general public. Subsequently, the collection was replenished with copies from France, Austria, Italy and other European states. In the museum you can see carriages of the XVII-XIX centuries. In 2015, a new modern building was built for the exposition.
