The new Museu Nacional dos Coches
The world’s first coach museum occupied the antique Royal Riding School, specifically adapted to receive a unique collection of coaches, berlins, carriages, calashes, phaetons, litters and sedan chairs, splendidly decorated, from the 17, 18 and 19th century.
On May 23, 2015 the collection moved to a brand new building by the Brazilian architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, a new reason to visit this extraordinary collection.
