The Fan Museum

If you are looking for an entirely different experience in London why not visit the Fan Museum in Greenwich.
The Fan Museum is another great example of the originality of London museums. The museum is set in two grade II listed buildings dating from the 1720s that have been sensitively restored to their original grandeur in order to exhibit these wonderful items in suitably lavish surroundings.
The museum details the history and social context of each of its collections taking into account the pieces in terms of both status and practical uses. Used for purposes of ceremony and simply to accessorise, their functions have changed many times throughout history.
The pieces on permanent display are intricate and beautiful works of craftsmanship – you can learn how such artefacts were crafted according to the time period and even enjoy a walk around the Japanese Garden of tranquillity afterwards. This Greenwich Museum also contains a permanent collection of 3,500 fans and the superb Hélène Alexander collection.
