Huguenot Museum

The Huguenot Museum is the first museum of Huguenot history in the UK. It tells the story of the First Refugees,French Protestants escaping persecution from the 16th century to the early 18th century. Discover why they left their homes, how they escaped and made new lives in Britain. The Museum includes examples of the craft skills they brought, from silk weaving to silver and clockmaking. We also have a fine collection of portraits of key figures in the story. The Museum makes connections with the stories of more modern refugees and our temporary display area includes a group of stunning pots by ceramicist Claudia Clare about the journey of a Kurdish refugee from Iran to London.

The Museum has family activity trails and dressing up in the galleries. We also have a gift shop selling a range of gifts, quality crafts and books for adults and children.

The Huguenot Museum is easy to find, above Rochester Visitor Information Centre on the High Street. The Explore Life Cafe is on the ground floor. The Museum is fully accessible with lift, disabled toilet and baby change facilities.
