The Fan Museum at Greenwich

The Fan Museum is at 12 Croom St, Greenwich and, at just £4 entry fee with numerous concessions, is well worth a visit.  The museum is thought to be the only museum,  dedicated to fans,  in the world.   There is also a charming Orangery style tea room (you do need to book ahead)

The museum is quite small but has a number of activities and events. You can also create or commission your own designs.  For more information please click here and then start with “Practical Information” from the side menu.  For more of the many attractions at  Greenwich please click here.
