The Fan Museum
I haven't got a clue what made me actually walk inside The Fan Museum, whether it was sheer curiosity mixed with bafflement and a female friend of mine literally dragging me inside, but I don't regret coming here, at the least. It is the only one of its kind, entirely dedicated to beautiful and rare antique fans from all over the world, holding some 3500 fans alone. It was just, well, let's say, "unusual" to find such a museum... it's worth seeing, though! [more]
Fan Museum is located at 12 Crooms Hill (the nearest station is at Cutty Sark).
One of its kind in the world, Fan Museum has a selection of more then 3500 fans collected from all over the world. The collection dates back to the 11th century all the way to the present day. The Fan Museum has a permanent collection, which is a sort of an introduction (how the fans are made, what materials are used and a little bit about different models and varieties) while the second part is a temporary exhibition that changes 3 times per year.
If you are visiting Greenwich you might as well pop by, as the Fan Museum itself is housed in a beautiful Georgian townhouse and especially since you can have afternoon tea there.
Opening hours are Tue to Sat from 11:00am until 5:00pm, Sun from noon until 5:00pm. Price of admission is Ł4.00. [more]
