Fan Museum

The Fan Museum is the UK's only museum devoted entirely to every aspect of fans and fan making.
The Fan Museum is home to more than 4,000 predominantly antique fans from around the world, dating from the 11th century to the present day. Its collections, along with fans on loan from other collections, are displayed in changing themed exhibitions in which fans are presented in their historical, sociological and economic contexts.
Visitors can enjoy the designs of these unique items which have served many purposes over the centuries: as cooling & winnowing devices, ceremonial tools, fashionable accessories, status symbols, commemorative presents or advertising giveaways.
