Carris is pleased to make public its memories and its contribution to Lisbon's growth for more than a century. This city has developed along with its public transport system.The existence of the Museum has two distinct and complementary reasons. The first concerns the creation of a collection based on historical and valuable objects, to ensure a global and updated knowledge of the company. The second aspect is the exposure of patrimony in order to contribute to the cultural development of the community and also to consolidate the company's image among the public. Internally, the Museum enhances human performance of its staff by strengthening their professional integrity, thanks to a deeper knowledge of the company.Carris Museum allows the visitor to take a journey through time using documents and objects that are placed at their disposal: reports, photos, uniforms, transport tickets, workshop equipment, trams, buses...

A superb museum with plenty to see. When I visited it was very quiet. I may have been the only person visiting at that time. The staff were all helpful and informative. You travel between the various sites on an old 1900's tram and the...More

Interesting museum spread across three different parts of the tram depot with a vintage tram ride between the halls. Good interpretation panels in Portuguese and English and an interesting selection of preserved trams.

Not only Trams, there are old double Decker buses which allow on board visit (even the driver seat). Unlike other museum which only allow distance watching. Great.

If you're a bus/tram enthusiast, you'll have lots of fun going around the old vehicles, as that is clearly the highlight of the place. However, the museum is somewhat confusing, and you find yourself alone and lost along the way.
