Museum of Amalia Rodrigues (Fundacao Amalia Rodrigues Casa Museu) Tours

Museum of Amalia Rodrigues (Fundacao Amalia Rodrigues Casa Museu)
The Museum of Amalia Rodrigues is dedicated to the great Queen of fado, Portugal’s most famous musical genre. Her three-story former home now features more than 30,000 of Rodrigues’ personal items on display for fans to discover. Visitors can see her glamorous outfits, portraits, awards, jewelry, and recordings on display.

The Basics
After popularizing the fado genre on an international scale, Amalia Rodrigues became known as the “Voice of Portugal.” The museum is a testament to her career and gives visitors a better idea of the independent and unique woman that she was. Most hop-on hop-off tours make a stop near the museum, which is located just behind the grand Sao Bento Palace, which can also be combined with a river cruise.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Museum of Amalia Rodrigues is a must-visit for music lovers and fans of the great singer.
  • Visitors can refuel at the museum’s cafe, TOO Natural Healthy Food, located on the ground floor.
  • 30-minute guided tours of the museum are available in Portuguese and English.
  • Photos inside the building are prohibited.

How to Get There
The museum is located in the Sao Bento neighborhood. The closest metro station is Rato, on the yellow line, which is a 10-minute walk from the museum. Visitors can also take city buses 706 and 727 to the Rua de Sao Bento stop, right in front of the museum. 

When to Get There
Visitors generally spend about an hour and a half admiring the home of Amalia Rodrigues. The best time to visit Lisbon is during the spring and autumn months when the weather is pleasant and there are fewer tourists. A visit to the Museum of Amalia Rodrigues can be combined with the nearby Basilica da Estrela and the Sao Bento Palace, now home to the Portuguese Parliament.

The Legacy of Amalia
Amalia Rodrigues is considered one of the greatest singers of the 20th century and made over 170 albums in her lifetime. Her contributions to preserving the Portuguese genre of fado granted her a burial spot in Lisbon’s National Pantheon alongside Portuguese presidents and other cultural icons. Fans and fado enthusiasts continue to flock to Amalia’s home to pay tribute since her death in 1999.
