This is one of the best cultural options to visit in Lisbon. While the house itself is quite small and does not have many items that originally belonged to Fernando Pessoa, I vividly recommend taking the guided tour, in which we are told many less...More

There was practically nothing to see here except the database screens and a library--fine for a rainy day if you're a Lisbon resident and Pessoa enthusiast, but certainly not worth a visit for ordinary tourists. Pessoa's bedroom with his furniture and storage chest was interesting,...More

It’s a cute and too small museum. 8 euro for a family ticket is too expensive comparing many other museum in Lisbona. There is so little to see that we were surprised. There is a nice library that you can enter for free and there...More

It is in English enough. But they keep the real alcohol and misery out of the picture. The house has only one short of original room. Only worth it if you're a tall fan.

Nice small housemuseum on Pessoa, who is introduced on a good interactive way. There is his former sleepingroom to walk in. But the best is the library, where you are presented Pessoa’s work in your language, offering you the most authentic way of experiencing it.

You will sooner or later pass Pessoa's statue near Praca de Camoes in downtown Lisbon. It's in front of a café he frequented. And if you visit the cloisters in the monastery at Belem, you will come across his grave. He's Portugal's greatest 20th century...More

Quite an interesting visit. Unfortunately, there was a school group visiting the house and since the place is rather small, we couldn't enjoy the visit in detail. There's a cafe at the back of the house so we opted to spend some time there while...More

We had a quick stop at Pessoa's museum, and we pretty much enjoyed it. Nice multimedia content on the top floor, nice gift shop and big library at the ground floor, very nice service from the staff but not much to see.
