The Automobile Museum was opened in 1905 on the initiative of Queen Amelia, who gathered a rich collection of carriages belonging to the Portuguese royal family and aristocracy. The Museum exhibition is not just vehicles; the museum's collection also includes a wide selection of clothing, accessories and decorative items used in the automotive industry, as well as exhibits related to the art of knightly and riding. There are also portraits of the Portuguese royal family.

The museum's impressive collection, which takes up a lot of space, is constantly growing; part of the museum's collection is housed in a palace in Vila Viçosa in the south of Portugal.
