It contains an exceptional and unique collection of richly adorned royal vehicles, from the 17th to 19th centuries, used by the Portuguese, other European courts, the Patriarchs of Lisbon and Portuguese noble houses up until the advent of the motor car. The new National Coach Museum building, inaugurated in May 2015, houses the most representative part of the collection. Occupying a site in Belém, it serves a two-fold purpose as a cultural facility and a public space.
