You know a city take pride in its achievements when it boasts of its public transport by way of a museum. This cute museum exhibits some beautifully restored historic Lisbon trams, buses and horse drawn carriages. It also takes you through the story of Lisbon’s public transport via reports, photos, uniforms, transport tickets, and workshop equipment. Recently, the museum has opened up a third space where temporary exhibitions are held – photography, painting and sculpture.
Conveniently located in Lisbon’s cultural heart, near the riverside in Alcântara, the museum is a quick but essential stop.

Amazing museum for public transport fans! Lots of interesting information on how it was developed in Lisbon, and most importantly - a great number of old trams! There are a few old buses too, but obviously trams are the stars:)) visitors travel between 3 museum buildings in an old school tram:D museum shop offers some good souvenirs, staff are very friendly :)
Strongly recommend. Always great to be here. You can see the history of trams, have a private ride, discover a collection of old streetcars. This all is included in the price that is cheap, comparing to similar museums. There is also a part dedicated to metro in Lisbon.
Excellent display of the history of the public transport system of Lisbon. Includes a short trip on a 1901 tram to see old buses.
Very nice, you can see old tras and buses, get in în some of them, i real like it
Supposed to be open on Saturday between 15 -18 h. (double checked) They were not. They probably couldn't be bothered because of a lack of other visitors, but if you want to go home early, don't apply for a job at a museum. Some of the rolling stock can be seen through the gates for free from a distance.
