  • Very interesting if you do not know yet what Fado is and meant for the Portuguese. Very nice and clear museum, not too big for this music not really is where you like, but big enough to store some information.

  • Very good approach to relate from the origins the eras of this popular art. Equipped with a hearing aid in "french" the visit unfolds before signs numbered with the time history and its evolution. ... Free tip on Sunday from 10 h to 14 h

  • 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.
