The Fan Museum

The only museum in the UK devoted to the history of fans and the art of fan making. Nestled in the heart of historic Greenwich, The Fan Museum is home to a diverse collection of fans from around the world, dating from the 12th century to the present day.

Our collections are displayed in changing exhibitions exploring the different themes which have inspired fan makers throughout history: politics, fashion, fine art and architecture to name but a few.
