The design, engineering and manufacturing of fans is the perfect blend of an age-old craft and modern technological advances. No where is the evolution of this more beautifully illustrated than in our Antique Fan Museum. You'll be able to see how we bring together antique designs and twenty-first century control and convenience to put Fanimation fans in a league of their own.
Some years ago, Tom Frampton an avid antique fan collector joined the Antique Fan Collectors Association (AFCA). The AFCA membership has operated a museum since 1997 displaying fans on loan by the membership; this museum was hosted by Vornado Fan Co. in Wichita Kansas. Last year the need to relocate the museum became apparent, and Fanimation made the offer to house it at its facility here in Zionsville. The move and set-up have taken nearly a year but July 23, 2009 saw it open. The museum houses some 2000 antique fans some dating to the early 1880's. Tom's own unique collection of fans, are now part of the museum collection as hundreds of antique advertising style hand fans and other memorabilia.
