There is also a list of best fado restaurants. We have chosen from that list.
Great modern style museum. It is showing history of Fado music from the beginning till nowadays. After you buy tickets you get a phone style electronic guide. Every single exhibit has it own number that you type into the electronic guide that tells you the story. There is a interesting film projections. The museum offers a wide varieties of exhibitions. From guitars to fotos and music albums. At the end you can buy disks with Fado music. I highly recommend going there to learn about an interesting genera of music.
What an amazing place! Could've easily spent 4 hours there. I absolutely loved the video with the Fado singers explain what this music means to them. Full of history!
