Located in the heart of historic Greenwich, The Fan Museum occupies two handsome Grade II listed Georgian townhouses – lovingly restored internally and externally. It is the only museum in the UK devoted in its entirety to the history of fans and the ancient craft of fan making. The museum’s founder Hélène Alexander is not only a leading authority on the history of fan-making but also a passionate collector, having amassed a priceless collection – arguably the largest in the country – of fans and related items. The museum houses in excess of 5,000 objects (not all on show at any one time) including works by Salvador Dali, Paul Gauguin and Walter Sickert.
