Discover The Fan Museum's wide range of digital initiatives.

Online Talks

Thank you to all those who joined us for Talking Fans: Season III.

Delivered by the Museum’s expert staff, each talk emphasized a particular aspect of the collections or a new area of curatorial research pertaining to fans and fan making, and focused on the seasonal exhibition Coronations & Celebrations.

Whilst the three talks have concluded, they have been recorded for archival purposes. Please contact the General Manager to receive a recorded version if you are keen to view any of the talks (charges may apply).

Explore our collections on Art UK

As part of our ongoing 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.
