The Fado Museum pays tribute to Fado. Throughout the museum, visitors are invited to discover the history of Fado, from its origins in the 19th century up to present.
Amália Rodrigues is perhaps the most famous and beloved of the Fado performers. She's the woman who moved Fado from the streets of Lisbon into the international spotlight.
An abstract piece of art hangs in the main gallery. It is difficult to tell the subject of the piece until you are up close.
This exhibit is a replica of a Fado restaurant which line the streets of Alfama.
The Portuguese guitar or Portuguese guitarra is a plucked string instrument with twelve steel strings, strung in six courses of two strings.

Hungry after your visit? I highly recommend Solar 31 just around the corner. I've been several times and the grilled Polvo is delicious!
