FADO MUSEUM

The story of Lisbon's music

Fado 
Museum The Fado Museum explains the evolution and the passion behind Portugal's famous musical expression with audiovisual presentations, multilingual information panels, and musical archives.

It presents the cultural and social influence of Fado since its origins, from its use in cinema through the impact of censorship in the 20th century. It also explains the technical and historical development of the Portuguese guitar and the so-called "Fado Houses."

A multilingual audio guide accompanies a tour of the museum, and there is also a multimedia section with recordings and biographic information of all the major Fado personalities, from singers to composers.

Those interested in doing research on the subject may make an appointment to check out the documentation center, available Monday to Friday, from 2:30 to 6PM.

Fado 
Museum, Lisbon There is also a café and restaurant with live performances, and a shop with a good selection of recordings.

For more about Fado and Portuguese music in general, see our Fado section.
