National Clothing Museum

National Clothing Museum (Museu Nacional do Traje)

The initial collection of the National Clothing Museum came from the Coaches Museum and was made of 7000 costumes and accessories belonging to the Royal House.

The current collection includes over 30 000 items, from costumes, textiles and accessories to dolls and toys. The textile technology is shown in a permanent exhibition, through the representation of cotton, linen, wool and silk and the spinning, weaving and manual stamping techniques.

Every two years, approximately, the exhibitions are renovated and there are regular short exhibitions with historical and etnographical costumes or showing pieces of contemporary artists and designers.

The museum opens from Tuesday to Sunday.
