Huguenot Museum | Things to do

Huguenot Museum


We are good to go. We have limited numbers in the galleries and 2 metre social distancing. Visitors must sanitise hands on entry, they must still sanitise if they are wearing gloves. We have protective screens and face shields for reception staff. No need to pre-book. We have increased cleaning throughout the day.

Did you know that 1 in 6 English people may be of Huguenot descent? We tell the story of the Huguenots, French protestant refugees escaping persecution from 16th to the early 18th century. More than 50,000 settled here especially in London and South of England. The Huguenots were noted for their skills in a range of trades and crafts, such as silk weaving and silversmithing, and had a huge impact on British business and cultural life.
We have a temporary display area and family activities in galleries, as well as an extensive programme of events. Our gift shop sells a range of quality craft gifts and books. Our volunteer researchers can help you discover if you have Huguenot ancestry.
