The Museu do Fado (Fado Museum) is a must while in Lisbon. Besides representing one of the region’s most important cultural legacies, it explores a musical genre classified as intangible cultural heritage.

It has a permanent exhibition and holds temporary shows, alongside a document centre and an auditorium with a very interesting programme and regular events.

Examining the artistic and bibliographical careers of dozens of artists and displaying an emblematic painting by the artist José Malhoa, amongst many other references and figures, the Museu do Fado is a place all visitors must see.

Technology is used to take a more in-depth look at history via the interactive information points that document the history of fado throughout the museum and the audio guides which allow you to listen to dozens of fado songs composed and sung down the decades.

The time and notes fly, in a refurbished building of historical interest close to the neighbourhoods where you can find fado being sung at night.
