  • The Museum is small, but has the great soul of Fado. Give us the story of Fado in a simple and beautiful. Fado Fado explains not sit down. The visit is carried out with audio-guides available in several languages. We can listen to recordings of some of the greatest Singers of all time. Part of the estate of the Museum the famous painting "the Fate" of José Malhoa, as well as works by Júlio Pomar.

  • 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.
