Although it's off the beaten track, the Museum of Music is definitely worth a trip if you're an enthusiast. Some real treasures are on display from the 16th century to the 20th century - everything from pocket fiddles and a plethora of guitarras (12-stringed Portuguese guitars) to Baroque harpsichords - plus related documents. There's also a specially-strengthened piano that Franz Liszt brought to Lisbon for a much-feted series of concerts, and which he left behind as a gift to the queen, Dona Maria II. The shop (closed Mon) has a good range of books and classical CDs, as well as miniature instruments.
