Tue Jul 24 2012
The Fan Museum is dedicated to the history of handheld fans and the craft of fan making, with a collection of more than 3,000 specimens from all over the world, some dating from the eleventh century. Housed in a pair of restored Georgain townhouses, only a small proportion of the collection is on display at any one time and it is rotated every four months or so. If you can come on a Tuesday or Sunday afternoon you can also take tea in the elegant Orangery. Fan-making workshops and temporary exhibitions are also held at the Fan Museum –see the website for details.
