From late Spring to the end of Summer, our first floor galleries will be home to a spectacular exhibition of more than 80 flower-themed fans, A Bouquet of Fans. Curated by the Museum’s Founder & Director, Hélène Alexander, the vast array of floral designs on show span the centuries dating back to the late 16th Century.

Just one highlight for this exhibition is a rare survival from the c.1590s, an Elizabethan fan with intricate embroidery on both sides of its leaf and finely carved ivory sticks.
