L’Eventail et La Mode
A unique opportunity to view museum quality antique costume and fans
The Fan Museum, Greenwich
Fan Circle founder member Hélène Alexander was able to realise the dream of a lifetime when, in 1991, the Fan Museum in Greenwich opened its doors. Opened after several years’ refurbishment of two partly derelict Georgian buildings near the centre of Greenwich, the Fan Museum houses a superb collection of fans and runs three special exhibitions annually, showcasing different aspects of the fan. A must for any London visitor, the Fan Museum and the FCI have always had a special relationship and the FCI organises visits there on a regular basis, as well as frequently holding its Christmas party in the Orangery.
