We knew next to nothing about Fado so when we found this little museum after wandering down the hills from the heights of the Alfama district we thought we would try it out. There is an entrance fee. If you actually take the time to read the exhibit tags/info and listen to the music excerpts in each space, you will get a good idea of what Fado was like in it's heyday and it's origins. Our 19 year old son found it just as delightful as we did. Don't miss the little sidewalk cafe's on the hillside opposite as there is sometimes someone playing live Fado during lunch at high season. Budget about 30-45 minutes for the visit.
