Yes .... If you happen to be in Greenwich on a Tuesday at 14.00.. then you can visit the Fan Museum for FREE if you are a pensioner

Its not much shakes for photographs ...
But a charming house with lots of interesting info.
And the coffee in the orangery pretty good.
We were there at the right time but to be honest I would have paid to see all those amazing fans
My favourite fan had sewing kit ... and cheek rouge hidden in its ribs

A sincere thankyou to Graham.Sylvia,Trev. and Richard for their user awards for my experimenting with flash...
Really made a bad day turn into a rather happy one ....Thankyou!!!!

How very beautiful! And a museum that allows photography... Smile
I spurned the Quilt Museum in York because they don't allow it. I wasn't going to pay £5 to go in and then not be able to take any pictures at all even of the building!

An interesting museum and image.
You're making the most of the winter weather and getting around exhibitions and museums.
Up here in Scotland most of our museums are free and you only pay for special exhibitions.

Hail girl

It is amazing how much work and love one puts into making fans. All those fine and artful ornament and brush strokes. That is passion pure I think.

Gosh, I havenít been in London for a long time, I might check this out myself.
Great little find here.

You didnít let this particular fan slip into your handbag when no one was watching by any chance? Smile
Nice one girl!

Fans should be used in exotic dances, I am led to understand...either that or cheering on their favourite rugby or football team.
