Announcing Open House 2013

11th September 2013 The Fan Museum987 views

On Saturday 21st September 2013 The Fan Museum will once again be taking part in Open House London.

The museum is housed within two Grade II listed Georgian town houses at numbers 10 and 12 Crooms Hill. Built in 1721, the buildings were designed by the architect and planner, John Savery. Since being acquired for The Fan Museum Trust in 1987, extensive repairs and restoration work has taken place to sympathetically transform the buildings back to their former glory. Many of the principal original architectural features and the domestic scale and character of the buildings have been retained. Original features include the façade, staircase, panelled rooms and front courtyard with its wrought iron railings and gates.

Entry is Free
