Já tinha visitado este museu há uns 3 ou 4 anos e na altura gostei bastante, pois parece que tive a sorte de apanhar uma exposição temporária de vestidos e outros objectos de cantoras de fado.

So yesterday when I arrived and I've only seen the normal display with some guitars, some pictures, old newspapers, and paintings, found the Museum too poor. It should be noted that during the visit I had access to a device that allowed me to hear the explanations and listen to fado songs when I was going through certain places in the Museum, but not all the numbers worked. So I'm not going back for sure. Excessive price (€ 5) for offering to the visitor. A small space with half a dozen objects.show original

WE FOUND THIS PLACE AFTER LUNCH AND ENTERED FOR FREE (BEFORE 2PM). TIDY AND INFORMATIVE. GOOD TO LEARN A BIT MORE ABOUT FADO ALTHOUGH IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED IT MIGHT BE BETTER TO EXPERIENCE A LIVE SHOW.
Went u were today, while learning about fado was interesting, the real highlight for us was the art. Only a few artists, but many of their pieces that we really loved. Sent here on a buy one get one free ticket from Castelo S. Jorge..
A nice museum, but oddly quiet. They have a room with rotating Fado videos, but I nearly missed it as the door has a simple PULL label without any other identification. I enjoyed the videos in this room for a long time, yet I think the rest of visitors walked past unaware.
Be careful, it's 3 euros for people under 30 years old but the cashier will still try to make you pay 5 euros. You have to ask for the discount.
Fabulous food albeit a little pricey. Of course good music and a trsadigtional setting
