The Museu Nacional Ferroviário tells a story that covers more than 160 years of railway history in Portugal. A tour around one of the best collections of railway heritage in Europe - with around 36,000 objects! - We propose a journey through time, from the first steam locomotives, to the rail transport of the future.

This is a space for collective experience, dialogue and shared knowledge, open to all audiences who are willing to discover the cultural heritage and the historical, symbolic and technological role of rail transport in Portugal.
