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

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.

After seeing the Saramago Museum, I hung on to my ticket to get a discount to see Casa Fernando Pessoa, Portugal's great modern poet. I have to admit this was a little more challenging to find. It was off the usual tourist path (northwest of...More

I should open this review by saying I knew nothing about Fernando Pessoa before a recent holiday in Lisbon, and this house served to pique my interest and encourage me to find out more about him. Painted white, the building offers a very calm and...More

I like to immerse myself in local culture wherever I visit. I'd never heard of Fernando Pessoa until I saw his statue outside of the Brasiliria Cafe so I set about to find out who he was. He's one of Portugal's most famous and favorite...More
