The Fan Museum - Review

A museum of this kind can be expected to be found only in Japan. But, the Fan museum is one of the very few museums dedicated to the fan and is located in Greenwich in the city of London. It is located in the South eastern part of the city and was built in the year 1721. It opened in the year 1991 and is located between two grade II listed houses. Some of the fans which are on display here are really beautiful and you are sure to have a different kind of experience when here.

The Fan Museum, London Reviews

  • Obviously the place to go if you're a fan fan, but still quite interesting if you're generally curious or creative. Entrance includes an audio guide. Displays of different types of fan, construction methods, the materials used (metals, ivory, fabrics etc). Subject matter of fans extends to political commentary, souvenirs of Royal events, surreal cartoons and art in general. In my opinion the introductory video right at the start of the exhibition is informative but overly long (you can skip it if you want of course). There is a tearoom downstairs but I didn't get time to visit. Staff are friendly and attentive. There is a cloakroom available and a shop selling (amongst other things) fans!

  • We had afternoon tea and a lovely time here. It was £8 each for tea, scones and a selection of cakes. Staff were really helpful and found gluten free options at short notice. The orangery is really cute and feels a world away from the bustle of Greenwich. I'd definitely recommend it for something different to do. The museum itself is small but it's perfect for a browse!

  • I'm so happy I've picked Orangery to hold my wedding lunch reception. It is beautifully decorated, food is nice and the staff are really helpful and nice. I was even lucky enough to have the sun with me on the day. Everything is just perfect! We'll sure come again for our anniversary :D

  • Small museum in Greenwich that showcases fans from around the world but mostly from France and Asia.

  • The museum is really great. Two floors full with different fans from simple shaped to extravagant from different ages. In addition, the orangery tea place in the museum offers a great opportunity to enjoy some tea and feel like a British royalty.
