  • Fantastic place to visit if you are music lover, great history shown and great atmosphere, must visit. 
  • I went because I didn't know to go to Portugal FADO too much. Admission fee is paid at the reception desk with audio guide (English), go to tour along the corridor. You can hear the song and select the number of the most famous singers can't give good descriptions of the exhibits. Video area has chairs, Digest films to be shown, reveals the magnificence of the FADO. I would visit before going to the FADO live.

  • 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.
