    Loyal

    'We are loyal fans of this museum'
    'We are loyal lovers of this museum'
    Can I use both?
    Or also which are synonyms for 'fan/fans'?

    Re: Loyal

    Maybe 'admirers' or whatever else?

    Re: Loyal

    Museums typically have visitors, patrons, and some museums have sponsorship programs that call their members friends.
    I don't have a problem with "huge fans", "great fans", "regular visitors", "loyal patrons" (a bit formal), or "loyal supporters", but "loyal fans" doesn't work for me in the context of museums.

    Re: Loyal

    I agree with the above. In my judgement, neither of the following phrases is good.

    loyal fans of a museum
    loyal lovers

    I think the problem in this context is the word loyal.
