About the Museum

Open to the public since 1991, The Fan Museum is an accredited, independent museum dedicated to the history, culture and craft of hand-held fans. Its collections of predominantly antique fans are housed within two Grade II* listed Georgian town houses situated in historic Royal Greenwich. A permanent display showcases the museum’s eclectic collection: from Early European fan paintings to contemporary designs. The first-floor gallery houses temporary exhibitions which encompass themes of fashion, art, politics, court life and more.
