  • to discover the fado, its history, its evolution, its political connotations, etc. The Museum is very well organized, very educational and full of beautiful music to listen to

  • There's not much to look at but much to listen to this Museum in the heart of the old town, savoring the nostalgic soul of Lisbon in a thousand forms, up to the most talented young singers. Of course, if you're not experienced, musicians get there with the desire to get involved and maybe some preliminary reading. Modern, clean bathrooms, nice shop inside. Slow ticket and a bit grumpy, somewhat in line with other museums

  • Excellent place to see, feel and listen to Fado. A must for anyone wishing to understand it a little bit more. They also have listening rooms to explore some of the past and current fado artists.
  • tudo lindo no museu
  • 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..
  • 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.
  • Fun tourist attraction, beautiful displays and music all around.
