Muzium Pedati Negara (Bahasa Portugis: Museu Nacional dos Coches) terletak di daerah Belém Lisbon, di Portugal. Muzium ini mempunyai salah satu koleksi terbaik pedati bersejarah di dunia, menjadi salah satu muzium yang terbanyak dilawati di bandar ini.

Muzium ini terletak di Arena Menunggang Kuda lama Istana Belém, dahulunya Istana Diraja dan kini kediaman rasmi Presiden Portugal. Kawasan Menunggang Kuda dibina pada 1787 mengikuti reka bentuk Neoklasik arkitek Itali Giacomo Azzolini. Beberapa artis Portugal menghiasi bahagian dalam bangunan ini dengan lukisan dan panel jubin (azulejo). Kawasan sebelah arena ini 50 m panjang dan 17 m lebar, dan digunakan untuk melatih kuda dan untuk pameran dan permainan menunggang kuda, yang boleh ditontoni daripada beranda oleh keluarga diraja Portugal.

The museum was created in 1905 by Queen Amélia to house an extensive collection of carriages belonging to the Portuguese royal family and nobility. The collection gives a full picture of the development of carriages from the late 16th through the 19th centuries, with carriages made in Italy, Portugal, France, Spain, Austria and England.

Among its rarest items is a late 16th/early 17th-century travelling coach used by King Philip II of Portugal to come from Spain to Portugal in 1619. There are also several pompous Baroque 18th century carriages decorated with paintings and exuberant gilt woodwork, the most impressive of these being a ceremonial coach given by Pope Clement XI to King John V in 1715, and the two coaches of the Portuguese embassador to Pope Clement XI, built in Rome in 1716.

A section of the museum is located in the Ducal Palace of Vila Viçosa, in Southern Portugal.
