What people say

"The Fado Museum is one of the places to visit in Lisbon. In addition to representing one of the most important cultural heritages of the region, it also has a restaurant and a themed store where you can spend time to take the spirit of nostalgia with you. Entirely dedicated to fado and the guitar, it allows you to visit the permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions, as well as having a documentation center and an auditorium with regular events and a very interesting program. With works by the greatest Portuguese artists illustrating the melody that made Portugal known to the world; the artistic quality of the museum will leave you impressed. The restaurant serves typically Portuguese cuisine and helps to give a traditional tone to your visit. But technology allows us to go deeper into history, through interactive consultation stations that document the History of Fado throughout the Museum's entire route; and the audio guides, which let you hear dozens of fados composed and sung over the decades. Time flies and so do you, in a rehabilitated space of public interest, very close to the neighborhoods where you can go at night to hear fado singing."
