Musée de l'Eventail

Anne Hoguet keeps the tradition of her ancestors alive in this arcane museum inside a 19th-century apartment, which has been a fan-maker's atelier since 1805. One room houses the tools of the trade; beside it is Hoguet's studio, where she works on fans for fashion and the stage. The former salle d'exposition, lined in blue silk, is where the collection of almost 1,000 historic fans is shown in glass cases and stored in cabinets.
