Explore our collections on Art UK

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new partnership with Art UK, the ‘online showcase for art in every UK public collection.  Our dedicated Art UK collection page features more than seventy fans from the private collection of the Museum’s Founder, Hélène Alexander and The Fan Museum Trust Collection. Each fan is beautifully photographed and enriched with detailed descriptions of its imagery, design, manufacture and context.

Virtual Exhibitions

In addition to the changing exhibitions taking place at The Fan Museum, we invite you to enjoy a number of virtual exhibitions or ‘Stories’ specifically curated for the Google Arts & Culture Platform. Each exhibition is themed around a particular period or genre and combines dynamic texts with high-resolution, zoomable object images.

Online Talks

Talking Fans: Spring/Summer 2022

Following the success of Season 1 of ‘Talking Fans’, The Fan Museum hosted another two thematic talks for Spring/Summer 2022.

We are currently developing a future programme of Talking Fans which we hope to announce later in 2022 in time for the new year.

Delivered by the Museum’s expert staff, each of the four talks will emphasize a particular aspect of the collections or a new area of curatorial research pertaining to fans and fan making.
