The Fan Museum is great example of the originality of London museums. The museum is set in two grade II listed buildings dating from the 1720s that have been sensitively restored to their original grandeur in order to exhibit these wonderful items in suitably lavish surroundings.
The museum details the history and social context of each of its collections taking into account the pieces in terms of both status and practical uses. Used for purposes of ceremony and simply to accessorise, their functions have changed many times throughout history.
