Museu Nacional Ferroviário has several indoor and outdoor spaces with unique features in Portugal. Therefore, we can host a wide variety of social events, such as birthday parties, weddings, christenings and corporate events (meetings, seminars, business dinners, etc).

In addition to the indoor spaces, the Museum also offers unique and alternative spaces such as historical railcars, the Royal Train, the Presidential Train, Sud-Express, among others, which can be arranged for various kinds of artistic and cultural productions.
