    The Fan Museum

    The Fan Museum
    Fans from around the world

    The Fan Museum is home to more than 4,000 predominantly antique fans from around the world, dating from the 11th century to the present day. Its collections, along with fans on loan from other collections, are displayed in changing themed exhibitions in which fans are presented in their historical, sociological and economic contexts.

    Visitors can enjoy the designs of these unique items which have served many purposes over the centuries: as cooling & winnowing devices, ceremonial tools, fashionable accessories, status symbols, commemorative presents or advertising giveaways.

    The painted Orangery exudes a refined atmosphere. Situated within the unique environs of The Fan Museum, the Orangery provides the perfect setting for smaller functions and special occasions.
