Hello Fans * The Fan Museum, Greenwich, London

While you are in London, never miss a visit to Greenwich - there is so much to do and see there. One of the less well-known attractions for some strange reason, is the Fan Museum housed in a beautiful pair of listed Georgian buildings built in 1721 at 10-12 Crooms Hill.

Opened in 1991 the museum holds an internationally significant collection of fans, fan leaves and associated material which numbers over 4000 objects. A programme of temporary exhibitions - changing about every four months - offers a chance to view a selection of the world's rarest and most exquisite fans dating from the 11th century to the present day.
There is a rather nice Orangery where you can book afternoon tea and a fantastic museum shop with a good range of books. Click here for more details of the museum. Click here to visit The Fan Museum Bookshop.
