"Museu Nacional dos Coches - Belem" Museu Nacional dos Coches Tip by calcaf38

Museu Nacional dos Coches, Lisbon: 19 reviews and 54 photos

 
 

The Marine Museum did nothing for me, but I enjoyed the Coach Museum tremendously. It is dark, somewhat spooky, creaky-quiet, and even a bit musty. I never thought much about coaches before, and I was amazed at the odd blend of luxury and discomfort in those coaches. Some were quite handsome, and some were so gilded they almost collapsed under their own weight. A lot of fun. (I wonder what they will think of our dreadful Hummer-Limos in 400 years).
