Huguenot Museum

The Huguenot Museum┬átells the story of Britain’s first refugees: the skills they brought, their descendants, and relevance to the story of refugees today. 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.


Opening Times

The Huguenot Museum is currently closed. To keep up to date on when the museum will be re-opening please check our website.


The Huguenot Museum caters well for all access needs. A lift from the ground floor is available to both floors of the museum and all galleries are wheelchair accessible. An accessible toilet with baby change facilities is located outside the lift on the second floor.

For visually impaired visitors we have a large print version of the text in the galleries, alongside magnifying glasses and reading glasses which may be borrowed. A transcription of audio in the galleries is available for those who are hard of hearing. We also have small steps available for families to borrow to allow small children to see into the higher cases.
