Add Huguenot Museum to your Itinerary

Huguenot Museum
The Huguenot Museum tells the story of Britain's first refugees: the skills they brought to the UK, their descendants, and relevance to the story of refugees today.

Using the stories behind the artefacts on display the galleries cover the persecution of the Huguenots in France, their arrival in England, the skills and trades they brought with them and the organisations they created. The displays also set the arrival of the Huguenots in the context of the wider history of refugees in Britain.

On the top floor of the museum a vibrant and engaging learning space has been created. Here visitors will be encouraged to continue to explore the Huguenot story, whether through taking part in one of our craft workshops, lectures or demonstrations.

For family historians and researchers the museum has a small archive room. Here researchers will have access to publications and academic articles from the Huguenot Society, normally only available at The National Archives. We also have a state of the art museum store where researchers can call up objects and archives from the museum’s collection to research.

The Huguenot Museum is open Wednesday – Saturday 10am – 5pm on the top two floors of 95 High Street, Rochester, Kent. Entrance is £4 for adults and £3 for concessions and can be validated for 12 months with gift-aid (entrance to the archive room is included in the price).
