A small museum in Greenwich that you’ve probably never visited will be a bit more interesting to visit in December when candles illuminate it.
About Fan MuseumThe Fan Museum owns over 4,000 fans, fan leaves and related ephemera. The oldest fan in the collection dates from the 10th century and the collection of 18th and 19th century European fans is extensive.
The entire collection is not displayed permanently due to conservation concerns, so three times a year the selection of fans on exhibit is changed.
There is also a permanent educational display which teaches about fan history, manufacturing processes, and the various forms of fan.
