Huguenot Museum | Things to do

Huguenot Museum


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.
